HISTORICAL AND GENEALOGICAL 

REGISTER 



JANUARY, 1919 



WILLIAM RICHARD CUTTER, A.M. 
By Hon. Edward Francis Johnson, A.B., LL.B., of Woburn, Mass. 

William Richard Cutter, librarian, genealogist, elected to resi- 
dent membership in the New England Historic Genealogical So- 
ciety in 1870 and made a life member in 1911, a member of the 
Council of the Society for the three years 1904-1906, Correspond- 
ing Secretary of the Society in 1910 and 1911, and its Historian 
for eight years (1906-1913), died at his home in Woburn, Mass., 
6 June 1918, in the seventy-first year of his age. 

He was born at Woburn 17 August 1847, the youngest child of 
Dr. Benjamin and Mary (Whittemore) Cutter, and was sixth in 
descent from Richard 1 and Elizabeth (Williams) Cutter of Cam- 
bridge, Mass., through William 2 and Rebecca (Rolfe), Dea. John 3 
and Lydia (Harrington), Ammi 4 and Esther (Pierce), Dea. Ephraim 5 
and Deborah (Locke), and Dr. Benjamin, 6 his father. Elizabeth 
Cutter, widow T , mother of Richard, 1 came to New England about 
1640, and died at Cambridge 10 January 1663/4. Her daughter 
Barbara was the wife of Mr. Elijah Corlet, the Cambridge school- 
master, and in her will, dated 16 February 1662/3, when she was 
"aged about 87 years," she stated that she had "sojourned about 
twenty years" with them. The Cutters lived in that part of Cam- 
bridge called Menotomy, which is now the town of Arlington. 

Mr. Cutter's father, Benjamin Cutter, was graduated at Harvard 
College in the Class of 1824, obtained from his alma mater the degree 
of Master of Arts in course and in 1827 the degree of Doctor of 
Medicine, and in 1857 received the latter degree also from the 
University of Pennsylvania. In 1828 he became a practising physi- 
cian in Woburn, and followed his profession there until his death, 
in 1864. He was a leader in the educational and civic movements of 
the times, and, among other activities, was founder of the Woburn 
Young Men's Library in 1835 and founder and first president of the 
Middlesex East District Medical Society, which was organized at 
his house on 22 October 1850. He gave much time to antiquarian 
and genealogical researches, and began the compiling of the genealogy 
of the Cutters in New England, which was afterwards finished by 
his son, William Richard Cutter. His wife, Mary (Whittemore), was 
a daughter of Amos and Rebecca (Russell) Whittemore and a grand-

daughter of Amos Whittemore, the distinguished inventor. After 
Dr. Cutter's death a public memorial service was held, and the 
citizens of Woburn erected a monument to his memory in the 
Woburn cemetery, "in testimony of his worth as a man, physician 
and Christian." 

William Richard Cutter was educated in the public schools of 
Woburn until his fifteenth year, when he was sent to the Warren 
Academy in that town, where he remained until April 1865. He 
then spent two years at Norwich University, in Vermont, and received 
from this institution, many years later, in 1893, the degree of Master 
of Arts. In the fall of 1867 he entered the Sheffield Scientific School 
of Yale University as a special student, remaining there about two 
years. In the meantime, haying access to the large college library 
at Yale, he became interested in the study of history and more 
especially of genealogy. He spent much time in collecting material 
for the revision and enlargement of the Cutter genealogy begun by 
his father, and brought it out in 1871 under the title, "A History 
of the Cutter Family of New England." A Supplement to this 
work was published in 1875. 

In 1871 Mr. Cutter moved to Lexington, Mass., and while resid- 
ing there prepared and published a "History of the Town of Arling- 
ton," for which much material had been collected by his father, and 
also communicated articles to the New England Historical and 
Genealogical Register. One of the most important of these 
articles was entitled "A Yankee Privateersman in Prison in Eng- 
land, 1777-1779," and contained the journal kept at Forton, Eng- 
land, by Timothy Connor. It was published in several instalments, 
with notes by Mr. Cutter, in the Register during the years 1876-1879 
(vols. 30-33). The original manuscript of this journal is now in the 
archives of the United States. In Lexington Mr. Cutter was clerk 
of the Hancock Congregational Church, clerk of the School Com- 
mittee, and clerk and treasurer of the Board of Trustees of the 
Cary Free Public Library. 

In 1882 he was elected librarian of the Woburn Public Library, 
succeeding George M. Champney, deceased, and assumed his duties 
on 1 March. He continued at the head of this library until 1 October 
1909, when he resigned as librarian and was made librarian emeritus 
by the Board of Trustees. He continued work in the Library until 
1 March 1912, thus rounding out a full thirty years of service to 
this institution. Thereafter he acted in an advisory capacity only, 
being annually chosen librarian emeritus. As librarian, Mr. Cutter 
recognized his position as a servant of the people of Woburn, and 
gave freely and willingly of his services, treating all classes with a 
uniform courtesy which was inbred. He was instrumental in secur- 
ing some notable gifts for the Library, the Baldwin Collection among 
others, and it was partly in recognition of Mr. Cutter's services 
that his brother-in-law, Dr. Harlow, gave the munificent bequest 
which is now so helpful to the institution. In accepting his resigna- 
tion as librarian the trustees of the Woburn Public Library expressed 
"their appreciation of your long and faithful services as librarian 
and the deep personal interest you have always taken in the welfare 



1919] William Richard Cutter 5 

of the library. They especially recall your efforts in securing for it 
valuable additions and benefactions. " 

Mr. Cutter served as secretary of the trustees of the Warren 
Academy since 1886 and as clerk and treasurer of the Burbeen 
Free Lecture Fund of Woburn since 1892. For several years he was 
a member of the Society of Colonial Wars in the Commonwealth 
of Massachusetts. At the time of his death he was president of the 
Rumford Historical Association of Woburn and a member of the 
New England Historic Genealogical Society, with which he had 
been connected for more than forty-eight years, to whose Register 
he was a prolific contributor, and to which, as has been stated at 
the beginning of this memoir, he rendered efficient service also as 
Councillor, Corresponding Secretary, and Historian in the course 
of the ten years 1904-1913. His membership in the First Church 
of Woburn was coeval with the present church edifice, and dated 
back to 1860. 

In addition to the numerous articles which he contributed to the 
Register, Mr. Cutter was the compiler or editor of many impor- 
tant historical, biographical, and genealogical works. He prepared 
for publication the last three volumes of the * 'Memorial Biogra- 
phies' ' published by the Historic Genealogical Society, and at the 
request of the late Charles Francis Adams he edited for the Massa- 
chusetts Historical Society part of the second volume of Chamber- 
lain's "History of Chelsea." In 1906 he was chosen by the Lewis 
Historical Publishing Company to be editor of some of its publica- 
tions, one of them being a four-volume edition of "Historic Homes 
and Places and Genealogical and Personal Memoirs relating to the 
Families of Middlesex County." Of special importance to his native 
town were his contributions to its local history. His history of 
Woburn, published in 1890 in Hurd's "History of Middlesex County/' 
contains more facts about that town than any other one publication. 
His "Contributions to a Bibliography of the Local History of Wo- 
burn," published in 1892 as an appendix to "Woburn Births," his 
annotated "Diary of Lieut. Samuel Thompson of Woburn, Massa- 
chusetts, while in Service in the French War, 1758," his article in 
the New England Magazine for February 1890, entitled "A Model 
Village Library," and his "Woburn Historic Sites and Old Houses," 
published in 1892, are some of his other printed contributions to the 
history of the town. He also assisted in editing for publication in 
the Woburn Journal the first volume of "Woburn Records" and the 
manuscript list of "Real Estate in Woburn 1st Parish in 1798," 
and the newspapers both of Woburn and of Winchester contained 
numerous articles from his pen. His knowledge of local history 
undoubtedly surpassed that possessed by any other citizen of Wo- 
burn. As illustrative of his early bent and his instinct for the preser- 
vation of local records it may be mentioned that as early as 1866 he 
made a transcript of the epitaphs in the first burial ground at 
Woburn, and thus preserved many family records which otherwise 
might long since have passed out of existence. 

From his father Mr. Cutter inherited his love for this antiquarian 
and genealogical work. His zeal in its prosecution was indefatigable

and unselfish. He was always willing to assist others in their 
searches in family history, and gave generously to them of his time 
and labor. His love for the work was superior to any pecuniary 
reward to be obtained from it, and he never exacted or expected a 
consideration for any information in his possession. He had also a 
natural aptitude for genealogy. To him it was a branch of knowl- 
edge only so far as it rested on things proven. His "transcendent 
capacity of taking trouble,' ' which was Carlyle's definition of genius, 
his refusal to accept hypotheses, and his insistence on facts placed 
him in the front rank of the genealogical profession. Such was the 
height of his ambition, and he lived to attain it. 

Mr. Cutter married, 31 August 1871, Mary Elizabeth Kimball, 
who survives him, daughter of Daniel. Their only child, Sarah 
Hamlen Cutter, was born in 1873 and died in 1890.

Company of the Militia at Waterbury, and in May 1777 he 
was elected captain of the Alarm List Company of North-

[Continued from vol. 72, page 240] 
COGGESHALL 

Contributed by Hon. Frederick Samuel Fish, A.B., of South Bend, Ind., 
and communicated by the Committee on English Research 

The late Henry FitzGilbert Waters, in the course of his genealog- 
ical investigations in England under the auspices of the Committee 
on English Research, found in the records of the Prerogative Court 
of Canterbury, at Somerset House, London, the will of Anne Cogges- 
hall of Castle Hedingham, co. Essex, widow, dated 16 Apr. 1645. 
This will, of which an abstract was published in the Register for 
July 1893 and was later reprinted in Waters's "Genealogical Glean- 
ings in England/ ' showed that the testatrix was the mother of John 
Coggeshall, prominent among the founders of Rhode Island, who 
died in 1647 while serving as the first president of that Colony. 
The will contained much information about the children and grand- 
children of the testatrix and mentioned other relatives. More recent 
researches in England have brought to light recorded copies of the 
wills of John Coggeshall, the grandfather, and John Butter, the 
uncle of John Coggeshall of Rhode Island, and records relating to 
this Coggeshall family have been found also in the parish registers 
of Halstead, co. Essex, in the lay subsidies for co. Essex, in two 
cases in Chancery, and in the Feet of Fines. Abstracts of these 
various records, including the will of Anne Coggeshall, previously 
published, are given in this article; and from them and from New 
England records the history of the family has been traced from the 
grandfather of President John Coggeshall to the establishment of 
the family in Rhode Island. 

The Will of John Coggeshall the Elder of Halsted, co. Essex, gent., 
27 December 1600. To be buried in the chancel of the parish church of 
Halsted, and my executors shall bestow a convenient marble stone upon 
my grave for the covering thereof, with some superscription in brass upon 
the same, or else some inscription of brass upon the church wall near unto 
my grave, with my whole arms and "schocheon" in the same to be graven. 
To the poor of Halsted 40s. at my funeral. To Elizabeth Watson, daughter 
to my son-in-law John Watson, £5 at her day of marriage. To my son 
Richard Coggeshall £20, to be paid unto him within one year after my 
decease, on condition that he make a lawful release to my son John Cogges- 
hall the Younger, which I had by my now wife Katherine, of any title or 
claim to all or any of my messuages, lands, tenements, or hereditaments 
which I have given or conveyed to the use of my said son John Coggeshall; 
and if he refuse, then he shall have only £5, to be paid within two years 
after my decease. To my son John Coggeshall the Elder, by my late wife 
Elizabeth, deceased, £10. To Alice Wangford, daughter of my brother- 
in-law John Wangford, 40s. at her age of twenty-one or day of marriage.

Harrington, children of my daughter Katherine, 10s. each at marriage. To

in his demesne as of fee or of some other estate of inheritance, of one parcel 
of arable land containing twelve acres, called Millers Close, one wood or 
grove containing six acres, called Swiftes Grove, and two parcels of land 
and pasture containing together six acres, called Swiftes Croftes, the said 
premises lying in the hamlet of Stanstedd in the parish of Halstedd, and 
being so seised, and being somewhat unthrifty in his estate and not pro- 
vident to preserve the same, and being out of money, did about April, 3 
James I [1605], borrow of one John Sydaye of Pebmarsh, co, Essex, gent., 
£100, offering to mortgage unto him the said lands and premises for security 
for repayment of the said £100 and interest at the rate of £10 in the hun- 
dred at certain times. The said Sydaye, being then a common lender of 
money, and knowing your said orator's father to be a man both weak and 
improvident and much neglecting the good of himself, his wife, and chil- 
dren, and knowing the said premises to be a good pawn for such a sum of 
money, did lend your orator's father the said £100; and the said John 
Coggeshall, by his deed dated 3 April 1605, did grant, bargain, sell, enfeoff, 
and confirm unto him, the said John Sydaie, his heirs and assigns, the said 
premises to the use of the said John Coggeshall, the father, his heirs and 
assigns, for ever, on condition that he, his heirs, executors, and assigns, did 
pay or cause to be paid to the said Sydaie at his dwelling house in Pebmarsh 
£10 on 15 April 1606, £10 on 15 April 1607, and £110 on 15 April 1608. 
And the said John Coggeshall, by deed indented dated June 1605, did grant, 
enfeoff, and confirm unto the said John Sydaie certain parcels of land and 
pastures sometime parcel of Stanstedd park in the parish of Halstedd, upon 
condition for payment of £60 at certain times and places, the greater part 
of which several sums was paid by the said John Coggeshall the Elder in 
his lifetime to the said Sydaie, although not at the precise and direct time 
of payment in the mortgage appointed, whereby the said closes, lands, 
pasture, grove, and other premises, in extremity of the law, became for- 
feited. And in 6 James I [1608] the said John Coggeshall borrowed £120 
or £140 more of the said John Sydaie; and John Sydaie, by deed of feoff- 
ment dated September 1608, reconveyed the said premises to the said John 
Coggeshall, on condition that he pay £300 to the said Sydaie, 20 June 1609, 
at the house of said Sydaie called Garnownes in Pebmarsh, or if not paid, 
the deed to be void. The complainant claims that the said John Cogges- 
hall in his lifetime paid to the said John Sydaie £300 in money, corn, cattle, 
and other goods, whereby the said premises ought in equity to remain to 
the said John Coggeshall the Elder and his heirs, as if the mortgages had 
never been made. The said Sydaie in his lifetime permitted the said John 
Coggeshall the Elder and his heirs to enjoy peaceably the said lands and 
to take the profits thereof. Both the said Sydaie and John Coggeshall the 
Elder have departed this life, and, no acquittance by the said Sydaie having 
been made, the complainant has no redress at the common law. The said 
John Sydaie, either in his lifetime by will or in some other conveyance by

him executed, hath made some conveyance whereby John Sydaie the 
Younger, one of the sons of William Sydaie of Buers, co. Suffolk, gent., 
by pretense of such devise or conveyance or at leastwise by descent, is heir 
unto the said John Sydaie the mortgagee, notwithstanding the payment of 
the said £300, and claims the said premises or some part of them; and, the 
said John, son of William Sydaie, being in his minority, the said William, 
as his father and guardian, has caused him to enter upon the said premises 
or some part of them and to make a lease thereof unto one Walter Bright, 
a man of little or no means and hardly to be found or inquired out, of pur- 
pose speedily to evict your orator and his tenants from the said premises 
and to hinder your orator of his due course by the aid of this Court. The 
said Bright, or the said William Sydaie in the said Bright's name, has 
brought several actions of ejectiones fermae against Richard Mullyns and 
John Diglett, your orator's tenants, to evict them and your orator, and 
your orator cannot find out the said Bright to serve process on him into 
this Court for your said orator's better relief in this extremity. Your orator 
complains that the said William Sydaie and his son John have the deeds, 
writings, and evidences in the case, and asks a process of subpoena against 
John Sidaie, Walter Bright, and William Sydaie, and a process of injunc- 
tion against Walter Bright and his solicitors to prevent their proceeding 
with any suit against your orator and his tenants. 

4 July 1620. Answer of William Sidey, gent. He denies that, as agreed 
by indenture of 28 September 1608, complainant's father paid £300, but 
says that he paid part of that sum, £148. 15s. remaining unpaid. And, 
for so much of the debt as he received, John Sidey reconveyed to the com- 
plainant's father the premises parcel of Stansted Park, and the said John 
Sidey did not afterwards claim any right or title to these premises. But 
for the other premises called Millers Cloase, Swifts Grove, and Swifts Croft, 
they remained to said Sidey, as security for the money still due. After 
the death of John Sidey complainant's father came to the defendant, exe- 
cutor of John Sidey's will, to agree and compound with him, confessing a 
great deal of money to be due but saying that he thought not much above 
£100; but the said John Coggeshall died before any agreement was reached. 
Defendant as executor has paid out in debts and legacies £200 more than 
deceased Sidey's personal estate amounted to, and so has made a lease 
to recover possession according to his rights therein. Being executor he 
acknowledges to have the deeds relating to Millers Close, Swifts Grove, 
and Swifts Croft, but no others. He is willing complainant shall have said 
land, if he will pay £148. 15s. and interest and damage for so long forbear- 
ance and detaining thereof. 

5 July 1620. Answer of John Sidey, an infant of fourteen years, by Wil- 
liam Townsend, his guardian and next friend. He answers as above, and 
also states that John Sidey died 2 August 1613, and that the £148. 15s. 
was owing eight months before that date. A lease of said premises was 
made to Walter Bright, Master of Arts, of Cambridge University, son and 
heir apparent of Thomas Bright, now or late Alderman of Bury St. Edmunds, 
co. Suffolk.* 

27 October 1620. Answer of Walter Bright, gent., as above. 

Replication of John Coggeshall [undated]. He denies that any part of 
said premises was reconveyed and declares all the defendants' answers to 
be false. (Chancery Proceedings, James I, Bills and Answers, Bundle 
C. 11, no. 34.)

8 May 1640. To the Right Hon. Sir John Finch, Knight, Lord Keeper of 
the Great Seal of England. 

Humbly complaining sheweth unto your Lordship your orator, Moyses 
Greenewood of Hingham, co. Norfolk, worsted weaver, that, whereas in 
or about the month of December 1637, your orator using the trade of mer- 
chandising with wares and other commodities into a place called New Eng- 
land, being an Island beyond the Seas where divers of his Majesty's subjects 
have planted themselves and do inhabit, your orator being at the same 
time present in person in the said place called New England, one John 
Cockshall, merchant, living there, being the son of Anne Cockshall, widow, 
who lives here in England in or near Hinningham [sic, Hedingham] Castle, 
co. Essex, desired your orator to furnish him with some such wares as he, 
your orator, had then there in New England to sell, the said John Cocks- 
hall, to procure your orator to give him credit and to intrust him for such 
merchandise as he should then or afterwards buy of him, did make known 
unto your orator that he had £40 to receive of and from Anne Cockshall, 
his mother. And the better to induce your orator to leave the same, he 
shewed your orator a letter which he had formerly received out of this 
Kingdom from his mother, in and by which letter it did appear that since 
his departing out of this Kingdom into New England there was given unto 
him by a friend or kinsman of his here in this Kingdom £40 for Ins particu- 
lar share, and that, if he would come over himself or send a letter of attorney 
to her, whereby she might have power to receive the same, and also send 
unto her a bill of exchange or some other discharge for the £40, she would 
pay it either to himself or to any other whom he would appoint to receive 
it or assign it over to be paid unto. Whereupon your orator in or about the 
said month of December did sell and deliver unto John Cockshall so many 
wares and other commodities at such reasonable rates and prices agreed 
upon between them as did amount unto £55 and upwards, and for pay- 
ment of £40 thereof he, John Cockshall, did assign unto your orator the 
£40 so given unto him and to be paid by Anne Cockshall according to the 
effect of her letter so sent, as aforesaid. And John Cockshall did also deliver 
unto your orator a letter of attorney, whereby he did authorize Anne Cocks- 
hall, his mother, to receive the £40 for him, and also a bill of exchange or 
some other warrant in writing directed to Anne Cockshall, his mother, 
authorizing her to make payment of the said £40 to him, your said orator, 
accordingly. And your orator since that time, viz., in or about the month 
of December 1638, did deliver the said letter of attorney and bill of exchange 
made as aforesaid from John Cockshall for payment of the £40 to her, the 
said Anne Cockshall herself. And she upon the receipt thereof did receive 
the same, and did acknowledge it to be her son's handwriting, and said she 
was much beholden to your orator for giving her son so much credit as he 
had formerly done concerning the bargain of and for the said wares. And 
she did also acknowledge that she had written the said letter to her son 
concerning the £40, and desired your orator to have patience and give her 
son longer time for payment of the £40, alleging that at that time she was 
not provided of so much money; yet in private between them two she did 
then and there faithfully promise your orator that she would pay unto 
him the said £40 so soon as she had sold or put off some lands or goods 
which were intended or given for the payment thereof and some other 
moneys to be raised for and towards the payment of the other legacies and 
sums of money, whereof the said £40 were parcel. But now, notwithstand- 
ing Anne Cockshall hath sold the lands and goods and thereby got into 
her hands great sums of money, far more than will satisfy your orator's 
debt of £40, which she more easily and speedily effected by having obtained 
from your orator the said letter of attorney and bill of exchange, for want 
of which your orator cannot now conveniently take his course for recovery 



1919] Genealogical Research in England 25 

of the £40 by any action of law against John Cockshall, he living in New- 
England, neither had your orator trusted him with the merchandise and 
goods so sold unto him, as aforesaid, but merely in regard that he made it 
appear unto him by Anne Cockshall's, his mother's, letter that there was 
£40 given him by a friend, the which by her letter she promised to pay 
unto him or to any that he should appoint, and for as much as she, the 
said Anne, upon the assignment and direction of John Cockshall, by bill 
under his hand, promised in private between your orator and her to pay 
him the £40, notwithstanding which promise she, knowing that your orator 
hath no witness to prove the same, so that he cannot bring any action of 
law against her, for want of witness to receive the £40 against her which 
she doth now refuse to pay unto him, your orator, notwithstanding that 
she hath the same in her hands and hath raised the same by sale of lands 
and other things which were given and intended should be sold to make 
moneys for that purpose and hath also since her promise to your orator 
paid divers other sums of money and legacies of that nature unto divers 
other persons and would not [sic] defraud your orator of his just debt, your 
orator asks for a writ of subpoena against the said Anne, to the end that 
she may answer unto the premises upon her corporal oath and may set 
forth by whom the £40 was given to John Cockshall and how it came to 
her hands and why she doth not pay the same unto your orator and when 
she did write the said letter to John Cockshall. 

Answer of Anne Cockshall, widow, defendant to the bill of complaint 
of Moses Greenewood, complainant. The defendant saith that she knoweth 
not (albeit it may be true, as in the said bill is in that belief alleged) that the 
complainant about the time in the bill mentioned did use the trade of mer- 
chandising with wares and commodities in New England, and saith that 
about twelve years ago, as this defendant remembereth, one John Butter, 
uncle of the John Cockshall in the bill named, by his (John Butter's) last 
will and testament did among other legacies bequeath to John Cockshall 
£40, and for the payment thereof to John Cockshall and for the other leg- 
acies mentioned in the said will did give power to certain persons in the same 
will named to sell certain lands and tenements whereof Butter was then 
seised within one year after the decease of John Butter's then wife. After 
whose death John Cockshall about ten years ago departed out of this King- 
dom to reside in New England, in which Island this defendant believeth 
John Cockshall after his departure and arrival there did plant himself and 
ever since hath and still doth reside. And during his absence, that is about 
four years ago, John Butter's wife died, after whose decease this defendant 
wrote a letter, directed to her son John Cockshall, thereby certifying him 
of the death of the said Butter's wife, and also by the same letter requested 
him to send to this defendant a letter of attorney to receive for him the £40 
bequeathed to him, as aforesaid, which letter, being written to the same 
effect as is herein before expressed, she, this defendant, did presently send 
away to be conveyed unto John Cockshall. And she did afterwards receive 
a letter from her said son in answer to the said letter sent unto him, as afore- 
said, and this defendant did likewise therewith receive a letter of attorney 
made by John Cockshall to authorize this defendant to receive the £40 for 
him, John Cockshall. But this defendant saith that after the death of John 
Butter's wife, a kinswoman of him, the said John Butter, commenced a suit 
at the common law for the recovery of the lands devised to be sold for the 
payment of the £40 and of the other legacies, as aforesaid, pretending title 
to the said lands as next heir to John Butter. For which cause the lands, 
as this defendant was informed, could not then be sold, neither could this 
defendant receive the £40 for John Cockshall. And this defendant further 
saith that within a short time after she had received said letter and letter 



26 Genealogical Research in England [Jan. 

of attorney from John Cockshall and during the dependency of the said 
suit touching the title of the said lands she did receive another letter from 
her son, which second letter was delivered to this defendant by the com- 
plainant himself, and John Cockshall by his second letter desired her, when 
she should have received the said £40, to pay the same unto the complain- 
ant. And this defendant also saith that upon her receipt of the second letter 
she told the complainant that she had not received the £40, for that the 
lands devised to be sold for the payment thereof were then in suit and there- 
fore could not be sold accordingly, and knew not whether she should receive 
the £40 for her son or no. And she further saith that after her receipt of 
the said second letter she was uncertain whether John Cockshall should 
enjoy his said legacy, and to the intent that John Cockshall should make 
payment or otherwise to satisfy to the complainant the debt due him from 
John Cockshall she sent another letter to John Cockshall, thereby certify- 
ing him that the lands intended to be sold for the payment of his legacy 
were then in suit and could not be sold and that she knew not whether he 
should enjoy his legacy or not and therefore desired him to pay the com- 
plainant the money due unto him. In answer to which letter this defend- 
ant, about Christmas 1639, did receive a third letter from John Cockshall, 
whereby he certified this defendant that he had there in New England 
satisfied unto the complainant the £40 mentioned in his second letter sent 
by him unto this defendant, as aforesaid, and therefore desired her (if she 
should receive his said legacy) to dispose of the £40 and to pay the same 
unto certain persons named in the same his last letter. But this defendant 
saith that she hath not hitherto received all or any part of the said legacy 
of £40 nor any satisfaction or security for the same or any part thereof. 
And therefore this defendant conceiveth, under favour of this Court, that 
she is neither in law nor equity chargeable with or liable to the payment 
of the £40 or any part thereof unto the complainant. And the rather also, 
that she is by her counsel informed that the last letter expressly contra- 
dicteth and forbiddeth her to pay the £40 unto the complainant and, con- 
trary wise, directeth her to pay the same unto other persons in the same 
last letter particularly named. All which being taken together doth (as 
she is likewise informed) include and imply an absolute revocation of the 
power given her by John Cockshall his second letter to pay the £40 unto 
the complainant. And also the rather, because by the said last letter of 
John Cockshall he hath certified this defendant that he hath satisfied 
unto the complainant the moneys which were due unto him by John Cock- 
shall, or such like words he, John Cockshall, in his last letter did use to 
that very purpose. And therefore and for other the reasons herein above 
expressed this defendant saith that she conceiveth and is informed that, 
in case she hath received or might receive the legacy of £40 since her receipt 
of the said last letter, yet nevertheless it would not be safe for her to pay 
or satisfy the same or any part thereof unto the complainant. And this 
defendant denieth that to her knowledge the complainant did sell and 
deliver unto John Cockshall so many wares or other commodities as did 
amount to £55, or that the complainant, to this defendant's remembrance, 
did deliver to this defendant any letter of attorney or bill of exchange or 
other writing from John Cockshall otherwise than is herein before expressed, 
or that she, this defendant, did promise to pay the £40 or any part thereof 
unto the complainant, as in the said bill is in that behalf pretended, unless 
she, this defendant, should first receive the same to her son's use. And this 
defendant also denieth that she hath sold or put of[f] any lands or goods 
which were intended to be given for the payment of all or any part of the 
said legacy, neither in truth had this defendant any power by the said will 
to sell any lands or goods for the payment of the said legacy of £40. And 
this defendant also denieth that she hath thereby gotten unto her hands 



1919] Genealogical Research in England 27 

any sums of money sufficient to satisfy the said complainant's pretended 
debt of £40, as in the said bill is in that behalf surmised, and this defendant 
further denieth that she did certify John Cockshall by any letter that since 
his departing out of this Kingdom into New England there was given unto 
him by a friend or kinsman of his here in this Kingdom £40 for his particu- 
lar part or share, as in the same bill is also falsely alleged. 

The defendant was sworn at Castle Hedingham, co. Essex, 19 January 
1640 [1640/1], before Edmund Brewer and Nicholas Jekyll. (Chancery 
Proceedings, Charles I, Bills and Answers, Bundle G. 35, no. 19.)

(I 



28 Genealogical Research in England [Jan. 

1. John Coggeshall "the Elder," of Halstead, co. Essex, gentle- 
man, the testator of 1600, died 1 Jan. and was buried at Halstead 

3 Jan. 1600/1.* He married first Elizabeth ; and secondly, 

probably about 1564 or earlier, Katherine , who survived 

him, was one of the two executors who proved his will at Braintree, 
co. Essex, 8 Jan. 1600/1, and was living 22 March 1608/9, when 
she and her son John were taxed 5s. on goods valued at £3. 

He held Munchensies in Halstead, which is described in Morant's 
Essex" as "a capital messuage, situated near Coggeshall bridge, 
on the left-hand side of the road leading from Halsted to Col- 
chester. It is so called, from the noble family of Montchensy, 
ancient owners of Stansted-hall [in Halstead] .... Walter Mont- 
chensy, a younger branch of that family, held this estate in the 
reign of King Edward III. — John Coggeshall had it in the reigns 
of King Edward VI. Philip and Mary, and Elizabeth. He made 
great additions to the house in 1563, and died 1st January 1600. 
About the beginning of this [the eighteenth] century, it came into 
the possession of the industrious John Morley, born in this town 
[Halstead] 8th February 1655; who, in the room of the old house, 
built a handsome brick one, with good gardens, &c. From him, 
it passed to his son; and is now in his grandson, John Morley, 
Esq. . . . This house and estate is otherwise called Collups, or 
Blue Bridge." (Morant's "History and Antiquities of the County 
of Essex," published in 1768 and reprinted in 1816, vol. 2, page 257.) 
The ' 'great additions" which John Coggeshall made to his house in 
1563 may have been for the purpose of preparing a suitable abode 
for his first or, more likely, his second wife. He is said to have been 
at one time a merchant in London. At Halstead he built also an 
almshouse, which had on the architrave of the porch the following 
inscription: "John Coggeshall did Bild this Hous in A° md63." 
The arms underneath were Argent, a cross between four escallops 
sable; and below them was the motto: "Truth by the selfe."t The 
Lay Subsidies show that on 1 Mar. 1566/7 he was taxed 6s. on goods 
valued at £6, that on 20 Aug. 1572 and 20 Sept. 1599 he was taxed 
8s. on goods valued at £8, and that on 16 Oct. 1600 he was taxed 
21s. 4d. on goods valued at £8. In 1570, according to the Feet of 
Fines, he and Robert Swattock purchased lands in Halstead. 
Children by first wife: 

i. Richard, living 27 Dec. 1600, when he is named in his father's will, 
ii. John ("the Elder"), living 27 Dec. 1600, when he is named in his 
father's will. 

Children by second wife, baptized at Halstead: 

iii. Katherine, J bapt. 26 Dec. 1564; m. at Halstead, 2 Mar. 1583/4, 
Thomas Harrington. Children, living unm. 27 Dec. 1600, when 
they are named in the will of their grandfather, John Coggeshall: 
1. Katherine. 2. Thomas. 3. Anne. 4. Susan. 

* In Beaumont's History of Coggeshall, in Essex, published in 1890, pp. 197-202, may be found 
an account of the knightly family of Coggeshall, whose principal seat seems to have been at 
Coggeshall, co. Essex. The arms of this family are said to have been Argent, a cross between four 
escallops sable; and these were the arms that were placed on the almshouse built by John Cogges- 
hall (1) at Halstead in 1563 (vide infra). But the exact relationship between the Coggeshalls of 
Halstead and the knightly family of the same name has not been discovered.

2. John Coggeshall (John), called "the Younger" to distinguish 

him from his half brother, John Coggeshall "the Elder," of 
Halstead, co. Essex, gentleman, born 24 July and baptized at 
Halstead 29 July 1576, was buried at Halstead 4 Aug. 1615. 
He married Anne Butter, who, as Anne Coggeshall of Castle 
Hedingham, co. Essex, widow, made her will 16 Apr. 1645, 
which was proved 10 Nov. 1648. She was a sister of John 
Butter of Thorington, co. Essex, yeoman, the testator of 1624/5, 
who in his will (q.v.) names many of his relatives, and leaves 
£40 to each of the three children of his sister, Anne Cogges- 
hall. In 1640 Anne Coggeshall, widow, was defendant in a 
bill of complaint (vide supra) brought in Chancery by Moses 
Greenewood of Hingham, co. Norfolk, England, who claimed 
the £40 which had been left to her son, John Coggeshall, by 
his uncle, John Butter, said Greenewood having, as he alleged, 
sold merchandise to John Coggeshall after the latter had settled 
in New England. 

John Coggeshall was seised of sundry parcels of land in Hal- 
stead, which in 1605 he mortgaged to John Sydaye of Peb-

t Elizabeth, daughter of John Coggeshall, "was married to the Rev. John Watson, vicar of 
Halstead, . . . and was buried at Halstead, where there is a small mural brass to her memory, 
now fixed to the south wall of the south aisle of the church. Incised on this brass is the figure 
of a woman, attired in the usual Elizabethan costume with ruff and high crowned hat, kneeling 
at a fald-stool on which is an open book. Before her are the kneeling figures of two sons, and 
behind her three kneeling daughters and a chrysom babe. Beneath is this inscription, Here 
lieth Elizabeth the wife of John Watson the daughter of John Coggeshall gent, who was buried 
February the 23rd Ao. Dni. 1604.' " — The East Anglian, loc. cit.

1647. He married in England Mary , born, probably 

in England, about 1604, died in New England 8 Nov. 1684. 

In 1620, while still a minor, John Coggeshall was complain- 
ant in a bill in Chancery, brought for him by Anne Coggeshall, 
widow, his mother and guardian, in regard to certain lands in 
Halstead which had been mortgaged by his father in 1605 
(vide supra). On 17 Dec. 1628, according to the Lay Sub- 
sidies, as "John Coxall," he was taxed at Castle Hedingham 
4d. on lands of the yearly value of 20s. On 1 June 1629, accord- 
ing to the Feet of Fines, John Coggeshall, gentleman, and 
Mary his wife, together with John Warman and Sarah his 
wife, sold lands in Halstead and Sible Hedingham, co. Essex. 
On 22 June 1632, as "John Coxsall," he appears in a list of 
thirty-three men "transported to New-England to the Plantacon 
there" who have "tendred and taken the oath of allegeance 
according to the Statute."* Soon afterwards, probably accom- 
panied by his wife Mary and his children, he sailed for New 
England in the ship Lion, and arrived at Boston on 16 Sept. 
1632. He probably settled first at Roxbury, Mass., as his 
name and that of his wife are found in the list of members of 
Rev. John Eliot's church there. He was admitted freeman 
on 6 Nov. 1632. Not long afterwards he removed to Boston, 
where, with his wife Mary and servant Anne Shelley, he was 
admitted to the First Church 20 Apr. 1634. He was chosen 
a deacon in this church, was one of the selectmen of Boston in 
1634, and was a deputy from Boston to the General Court in 
1634, 1635, 1636, and 1637. His name is preceded by the prefix 
"Mr." Because he supported Rev. John Wheelwright and 
Mrs. Hutchinson, he was expelled from the General Court and 
disfranchised on 2 Nov. 1637, and soon afterwards was dis- 
armed. About this time, in Dec. 1637, according to the bill 
of complaint (vide supra) brought in Chancery in 1640 against 
his mother, he purchased merchandise valued at £55 and 
upwards from Moses Greenewood of Hingham, co. Norfolk, 
England, who was then in New England, and authorized his 
mother, Anne Coggeshall, to receive the legacy of £40 left to 
him by the will of his uncle, John Butter, and to pay it to the 
said Greenewood as partial payment for this merchandise. In 
the following year he went to the Island of Aquidneck (Rhode 
Island), where, at Pocasset, later Portsmouth, 7 Mar. 1637/8, 
he and eighteen others signed a compact incorporating them- 
selves "into a Bodie Politick." On 28 Apr. 1639 he and eight 
others signed another compact, preparatory to settling farther 
south in the island, at Newtown, afterwards Newport. This 
compact was signed by William Coddington as judge and by 
John Coggeshall as one of the elders. At Newport John Cogges- 
hall received next to the largest share of land, his holdings 
amounting to nearly four hundred acres, situated in the south- 
ern part of the town. He was an assistant in 1640-1644, and 

was set up several years after his death. According to the Friends' record (Arnold's Vital Record 
of Rhode Island, vol. 7, p. 95) his age at death was 48 years.

in 1647 was chosen moderator of the first General Assembly 
of the Colony, for which Roger Williams had procured a char- 
ter in England. When this Assembly came to elect the general 
officers of the Colony, John Coggeshall was chosen president, 
and he died while holding this office, 27 Nov. 1647. He was 
buried a few rods west of his house, on his own land in Newport, 
and his descendants have erected a monument to his memory 
in the little burial ground, at the corner of Coggeshall and 
Victoria Avenues.*

52 Vital Records of Massachusetts Towns [Jan. 



THE PUBLICATION OF VITAL RECORDS 
OF MASSACHUSETTS TOWNS* 

Compiled by the Editor 

In 1918 the Massachusetts Legislature, as a measure of war 
economy, repealed the Vital Records Act of 1902, which provided 
for the preservation m print of the vital records, prior to 1850, of 
Massachusetts towns; and accordingly this important work, carried 
on for more than sixteen years by the aid and under the supervision 
of the State and far advanced towards completion, is unfinished, 
and will remain so, unless arrangements are made for continuing it 
without the help of an appropriation from the Commonwealth. It 
seems fitting, therefore, at this time, to describe what has already 
been accomplished in printing in book form the vital records of 
Massachusetts towns, both under the Act of 1902 and also inde- 
pendently of the supervision of the State, and then to present the 
plan in accordance with which the New England Historic Genea- 
logical Society, if it receives sufficient financial support, intends to 
continue and, it is hoped, to complete the task from which the 
State has withdrawn its aid. 

Previous to 1902 the vital records of a small number of towns in 
Massachusetts had been printed in book fqrm, either at the expense 
of the towns themselves or by societies or individuals. Some of 
these volumes contained verbatim copies of the original records; 
in others the facts found in the original records were arranged alpha- 
betically by surnames or in some other way preferred by the com- 
pilers. Even since 1902 such books have been published from time 
to time. But in 1902 the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, chiefly 
in response to representations made by the New England Historic 
Genealogical Society, began to encourage the printing of vital records 
by undertaking to purchase a large number of copies of each book 
offered, the General Court adopting a measure which was approved 
by the Governor on 11 June 1902 and was entitled "An Act To pro- 
vide for the Preservation of Town Records of Births, Marriages 
and Deaths Previous to the Year Eighteen Hundred and Fifty. " 
By this law the Secretary of the Commonwealth was directed to 
purchase, at a fixed rate per page, 500 copies of the record of the 
births, marriages, and deaths, previous to 1850, of any town in 
Massachusetts, whenever such record should be printed and veri- 
fied in the manner required by the Commissioner of Public Records 
and the Board of Free Library Commissioners, acting jointly, and 
the work should appear to them to have been prepared with accu- 
racy, provided that not more than $15,000 should be expended by 
authority of this act in any one year. The volumes thus purchased 
were to be distributed by the Secretary to certain public offices, 
libraries, and historical societies in Massachusetts and to certain 
libraries outside of Massachusetts. 

In this act no provision was made for the printing of records of 

* The word town or towns, as used in this article, refers both to towns and cities. 



1919] Vital Records of Massachusetts Towns 53 

births, marriages, and deaths occurring since 1849, because from 
that time on town clerks have been required by law to send each 
year to the State House in Boston copies of the vital records entered 
in their town books during the previous year. In case, therefore/ 
the original vital records of a town for this later period should be 
damaged or destroyed, an official copy of such records could be con- 
sulted at the State House, where the excellent system of indexing 
employed by the State officials makes it easy to find the copy of 
the record of any birth, marriage, or death that has been entered 
in town records in Massachusetts since the town clerks began to 
make their annual returns to the State authorities. The loss or 
destruction, however, of the vital records of a town prior to 1850 
which had not been printed would in all probability involve the loss 
of all the information contained in them, except in the rare cases 
where manuscript copies are in existence or items relating to some 
particular family have been incorporated in a family history. 

From the enactment of the Vital Records Act in 1902 down to 
its repeal, which took effect on 1 Dec. 1918, the work of preparing 
and publishing these vital records in the form approved by the State 
authorities was carried on by the New England Historic Genea- 
logical Society and by a few other societies and individuals. During 
this period of sixteen and one-half years the Secretary of the Common- 
wealth purchased and distributed to the public offices, libraries, 
and historical societies designated in the Act 169 volumes, contain- 
ing the vital records, prior to 1850, of 149 Massachusetts towns and 
a part of the vital records of two other towns. Organizations and 
individuals not entitled to receive these volumes free of charge from 
the State have been able to purchase them from the several pub- 
lishers, who have printed and offered for sale a few extra copies 
of each book. The vital records of 26 other towns, in whole or in 
part, have also been published in book form; but, as many of them 
were printed before 1902 and as they are for the most part not 
arranged on the same plan as the books purchased by the State, 
they are not included in the series authorized by the Act of 1902. 
Some of them, however, have been prepared and printed with the 
most painstaking regard for accuracy, and are extremely useful to 
those engaged in genealogical, historical, or legal research. 

The following list, arranged by counties, shows the progress 
made, up to 1 Jan. 1919, in printing in book form the vital records 
of Massachusetts towns, and indicates, the extent of the work still 
remaining to be done. No attempt has been made to include in 
this list towns whose records, in whole or in part, have been pub- 
lished in periodicals but have not been reprinted in book form.* 
Under each county in the State are given first the number and names 
of the towns whose records have been printed, with the date of pub- 
lication, number of pages, and other necessary explanations, in so 
far as it is possible to furnish such information. Names of towns 
whose records are not included in the series authorized by the State 
are printed in italics, and towns whose records have been published 

* For references to town records published in periodicals (down to 1907) see Flagg's Guide to 
Massachusetts Local History, under the names of the several towns.

Vital Records of Massachusetts Towns 



[Jan. 



by the New England Historic Genealogical Society are indicated by 
an asterisk after the name. Then follow the number and names of 
the towns incorporated before 1850 whose records have not yet 
been printed. A third group comprises the number and names of 
the towns which have been incorporated since 1849, with the year 
of incorporation. The printing of the vital records of the towns in 
this group, for the reason stated above, was not provided for in the 
Act of 1902. A summary, arranged by counties, follows the detailed 
list. Towns which existed as separate municipalities prior to 1850 
but were afterwards annexed to other towns are placed in the 
counties to which they belonged before such annexation.

In this summary the total number of towns in Massachusetts is 
given as 361. This number includes seven former towns which have 
been annexed to other towns, the actual number of towns in the State 
to-day being 354. Of these, 43*** were incorporated after 31 Dec. 
1849, and the publication of their vital records was not provided for 
in the Act of 1902. To the 311 remaining towns, which were incor- 
porated before 1850, there should be added five towns incorporated 
before 1850 but later annexed to other towns, the total number of 
towns whose records were subject to publication in accordance with 
the Act of 1902 being 316. 

Of these 316 towns, the vital records of 149 and a part of the vital 
records of two others have been published in 169 volumes containing 
51,265 pages, and have been accepted by the State under the pro- 
visions of the Vital Records Act of 1902; the records of 26 others, 
in whole or in part, have been published in book form prior to or 
independently of the Act; and the records of 141 towns, including 
the two towns whose records have been printed in part in the State 
series, remain unpublished. The records of almost one-half (more

than 46%%) of the towns existing as separate municipalities prior 
to 1850 have therefore already been published in the form approved 
by the State, and, as far as the number of printed pages is concerned, 
probably a much larger proportion of the work has been completed 
in this form, for many of the towns having voluminous records are 
among those whose records have been printed. If the 26 other 
towns whose records have been published are added to the towns 
whose printed records have been accepted by the State, it is evident 
that the vital records of considerably more than one-half (nearly 
55%%) of the 316 towns have been published in book form. 

The importance of preserving in print the vital records of the 141 
towns whose records remain unpublished and of making them 
accessible in libraries and public offices cannot be questioned. In 
spite of laws providing for their protection, unpublished vital records 
are liable to damage or destruction, and this is especially true of 
church, cemetery, and private records. Town, church, and private 
records are sometimes lost, misplaced, mutilated, or stolen. With 
the lapse of time and with repeated handling they frequently become 
illegible, worn, or torn. In many cases epitaphs furnish the only 
record of deaths, and yet gravestones occasionally disappear, and 
inscriptions suffer from the action of the elements and the defacing 
of the stones. But the publication of vital records ensures for centu- 
ries the preservation of the genealogical information that they contain. 

The records printed under the Act of 1902 have included material 
taken not only from town records but also (except in a few of the 
earlier volumes) from church, gravestone, and private records; and 
the books thus prepared and published have proved their value to 
lawyers, trustees, executors of wills, administrators of estates, con- 
veyancers, and all who seek to determine questions of relationship 
as affecting rights to property, as well as to students of family his- 
tory and genealogists. The records not published are practically 
inaccessible, except to those living in the locality where they are 
to be found, although persons interested in the records of a single 
Massachusetts town may be scattered far and wide over the Ameri- 
can continent. 

It is, therefore, exceedingly desirable that the work of preserving 
in print these vital records and making them accessible to the public 
should not be suspended, and that the records not yet printed should 
be published in the form adopted for the volumes already issued 
under the provisions of the Act of 1902. For this reason the New 
England Historic Genealogical Society, to whose efforts some seven- 
teen years ago the enactment of the Vital Records Act was largely 
due, has decided to continue this series of publications, provided 
that enough subscriptions are secured to defray 80% of the expenses 
of the work. It has already published 70 volumes of vital records 
in the form approved by the State authorities, and these volumes 
contain the records of 65 towns — nearly one-half of the towns whose 
records have been purchased and distributed by the Commonwealth. 
It now plans to publish from 1000 to 1250 pages annually, and is 
receiving subscriptions, either for all the books that it may publish 
in this series or for the vital records of one or more towns of especial 



62 Deaths in Stratham, N. H. [Jan. 

interest to the subscriber, at the rate of 2J4 cents per printed page. 
This price has been fixed after a careful consideration of the cost of 
all the labor and materials entering into the production of books of 
this kind, and will include binding, but not the expense of deliver- 
ing the books by mail or express. The books will be uniform in 
size, appearance, general arrangement, and sources of information 
with the previous volumes of the series, and the standard of accuracy 
already established will be maintained. 

The Vital Records of Plympton and of Nantucket are in an ad- 
vanced stage of preparation; the former book will probably be ready 
for printing before the close of 1919 and the latter book in the course 
of 1920. The Vital Records of Taunton, Dartmouth, and New 
Bedford are next in order, and the records of other towns also are 
in preparation. The Society expects to be able to publish, within 
a few years, the vital records down to 1850 of most Massachusetts 
towns whose records have not yet been printed. 

In continuing the publication of these records, so important to 
the present generation and to posterity, the Society is confident that 
it may rely on the cooperation of the libraries, historical and genea- 
logical societies, and individuals who have hitherto subscribed to the 
volumes of this series; it counts also on the patriotic support of the 
greater part of the numerous institutions which have in the past 
received these books, free of charge, from the Commonwealth of 
Massachusetts; and it looks for substantial encouragement in this 
undertaking to the many growing and progressive libraries and 
historical societies, throughout the United States and even beyond 
its borders, which have been founded in regions whither men and 
women of New England ancestry have gone to establish new homes. 



DEATHS IN STRATHAM, N. H., 1777-1826 

Transcribed by Miss Anna Mathes Lane and Miss Abby Frances Lane 

of Stratham and Dover, N. H., and communicated by 

George Walter Chamberlain, M.S., of Maiden, Mass. 

In the Register, vol. 30, pages 426-428, there was printed, under 
the title "Deaths in Stratham, N. H., commencing August 20, 1741," 
the first instalment of a record of deaths kept by Dea. Samuel Lane of 
Stratham. The publication of this record was continued from time to 
time in subsequent issues of the Register (vol. 32, pages 48-50, 
vol. 47, pages 19-20, 477-480, and vol. 48, pages 27-31, 337-343), 
and ceased with two entries dated Nov. 30, 1776. 

The original record kept by Deacon Lane extends almost to the 
close of the year 1806, and some one has added to it the record of 
the Deacon's own death, 29 Dec. 1806. His son, Jabez Lane, kept 
a similar record of deaths in his diaries, entering the dates and names 
on the second page of the diary for each year. The first part of 
Jabez Lane's record overlaps that kept by his father, and his entries 
come down to the end of March 1810. George Lane, son of Jabez, 



1919] Deaths in Stratham, N. H. 63 

entered the record of his father's death, 3 Apr. 1810, and continued 
the list to the latter part of 1826. The almost total lack of death 
entries in the town records of Stratham during this period makes these 
private records especially valuable. 

Below are given the records kept by these three men — father, son, 
and grandson, beginning at the point where the publication of Dea. 
Samuel Lane's record in the Register ceased nearly twenty-five 
years ago. For the years in which both Deacon Lane and his son 
Jabez recorded deaths Deacon Lane's entry of each death is given 
first, and any variations from or additions to his record found in 
the entries made by his son are added in brackets or placed in foot- 
notes, and are indicated by the letters j. l. The records kept by 
George Lane have been arranged in chronological order. The 
original books, with a collection of diaries, are in the possession of 
Miss Abby Frances Lane, daughter of Dea. Edmund J. Lane and 
great-granddaughter of Dea. Samuel Lane, and are preserved in a 
fireproof safe in her Stratham home. 

In the introduction to the records already printed in the Register 
(vol. 30, page 426) it is stated that Samuel Lane was born at Hampton, 
N. H., 6 Oct. 1718, that he removed thence to Stratham 11 June 1741, 
and that he remained there until his death, which took place 29 Dec. 
1806. He was selectman and town clerk several years, a land sur- 
veyor, employed by the governors under the Crown and after the 
Revolution, deacon of the church for thirty-five years, and elder in the 
church for the remainder of his life. His house was near the burying 
ground, and he kept the palls which it was then the custom to use — 
a large one, and a smaller one for children. Therefore a death occur- 
ring in Stratham could hardly have escaped his notice. 

On the second page of Dea. Samuel Lane's record of deaths is found 
the following statement, in a fine, distinct handwriting :

PROCEEDINGS OF THE NEW ENGLAND HISTORIC 
GENEALOGICAL SOCIETY 

By Henry Edwards Scott, A.B., Recording Secretary 

Boston, Massachusetts, 2 October 1918. A stated meeting of the Society was 
held in Wilder Hall, 9 Ashburton Place, at 2.30 P.M. 

In the absence of the President and of all the Vice-Presidents, the meeting 
was called to order by the Recording Secretary, and, on motion, Professor George 
Hunt Barton of Cambridge, Mass., was elected Chairman pro tempore. 

The minutes of the May meeting were approved, and the reports of the Cor- 
responding Secretary, Librarian, Historian, and Council were accepted, the 
Council reporting the names of twenty-one persons who had been elected resident 
members. 

On motion it was unanimously 

Voted, That the New England Historic Genealogical Society hereby expresses its appreciation 
of the loss that it has sustained in the death, on 16 May 1918, of Hon. Louis Atwood Cook, elected 
a Councillor of the Society in February of this year, and that it extends to his widow and children 
its heartfelt sympathy in their bereavement. 

On behalf of and by direction of the Council the Recording Secretary sub- 
mitted a proposed amendment to Article 1 of Chapter III of the By-Laws, and 

* A memorandum found among the papers of Dea. Samuel Lane reads: "My son in Law Wm 
Bordman Died at Newmarket March 30, 1804." 



78 Proceedings of the N. E. Hist. Gen. Society [Jan. 

on motion it was referred to the Special Committee on Revision of the By- 
Laws, with a request for a report at the November meeting of the Society. 

The lecture announced for this meeting having been postponed, in conformity 
with the regulations of the health officials in regard to public assemblies during 
the prevailing epidemic of influenza, the meeting at 2.45 P.M. adjourned. 

6 November. A stated meeting of the Society was held in Wilder Hail, 9 Ash- 
burton Place, at 2.30 P.M., President Baxter presiding. 

The minutes of the October meeting were approved, and the reports of the 
Corresponding Secretary, Librarian, Historian, and Council were accepted, 
the Council reporting the names of four persons who had been elected resident 
members. 

The Recording Secretary read a report from the Special Committee on Re- 
vision of the By-Laws, stating that it had considered the proposed amendment 
to Article 1 of Chapter III of the By-Laws, referred to it by the Society at the 
stated meeting on 2 October 1918, and that it recommended that said amend- 
ment be adopted, in such form that the second paragraph of said article, when 
amended, shall read as follows : 

Stated Meetings of the Society shall be held in its house, or elsewhere as the Council may 
decide, on the first Wednesday in every month except June, July, August and September, at 
half past two o'clock in the afternoon, or at such other day or hour as may be designated by the 
Council, notice of which shall be sent at least three days before the day of the meeting. 

On motion said report was accepted, and it was 

Voted, That the proposed amendment to Article 1 of Chapter III of the By-Laws, in the form 
recommended by the Special Committee on Revision of the By-Laws, be adopted. 

By ballot the following were unanimously elected members of the Nominating 
Committee: George Walter Chamberlain, Mrs. Florence Conant Howes, Charles 
Edward Mann, George Ritchie Marvin, and Mrs. Mary Stickney Randall. 

President Baxter then presented Countess Laura de Gozdawa Turczynowicz, 
President of the Polish Reconstruction Association, Inc., of New York City, 
who spoke on When the Prussians Came to Poland. Madame de Turczynowicz, 
the American wife of a Polish nobleman, gave a vivid and thrilling narrative 
of the inhuman treatment to which she and her little children were subjected 
when her adopted country was overrun by the Germans in the early months of 
the war. 

In response to a call from President Baxter a rising vote of thanks was given 
to the speaker, and the President then declared the meeting dissolved. 

After the meeting many of the members and their friends availed themselves 
of the opportunity of expressing to the Countess their appreciation of her tragic 
story. 

4 December. A stated meeting of the Society was held in Wilder Hall, 9 Ash- 
burton Place, at 2.30 P.M., President Baxter presiding. 

The minutes of the November meeting were approved, and the reports of 
the Corresponding Secretary, Librarian, Historian, and Council were accepted, 
the Council reporting the names of six persons who had been elected resident 
members. 

The report of the Nominating Committee was read and accepted. 

The President appointed Messrs. George Sawin Stewart and Hosea Starr 
Ballou as auditors to audit the accounts of the Treasurer for the current year. 

President Baxter then presented the speaker of the afternoon, Mr. John 
Albree of Boston, a former Recording Secretary of the Society, who gave a 
unique and entertaining paper, entitled The Art of Singing in the Old Bay Colony. 
A mixed quartette, under the direction of Mr. Arthur B. Keene of Lynn, sang 
pleasing selections to illustrate the theme, and led the audience twice in the 
singing of old hymns. The most noteworthy of these was the One Hundredth 
Psalm, mentioned by Longfellow in the Courtship of Miles Standish, and sung 
for the first time in two hundred years by a Boston audience at this December 
meeting of the Society. Mr. Albree also showed rare psalm books — one of them 
printed in 1612 — and other exhibits, which added to the value of a lecture which 
had attracted over three hundred members and guests. 

On motion of Mr. Walter Kendall Watkins a vote of thanks was given to 
Mr. Albree and his assistants, and the President then declared the meeting 
dissolved. 

After the meeting a social hour was enjoyed and refreshments were served. 



1919] Notes 79 

NOTES 

It having come to the attention of this Society that certain geneal- 
ogists and publishers have used the name of the Society in con- 
nection with their own enterprises, the Society again desires to 
state that it has NO genealogical representatives in this country 
or in England, nor is it in any way connected with any publications 
other than those that it issues over its own name at 9 Ashburton 
Place, Boston.

Historical Intelligence 

Heraldry. — The Committee on Heraldry of the New England Historic 
Genealogical Society strongly recommends that all coats of arms which can be 

proved to be authentic be offered for record 
with this Society. The arrangements for the 
making and preservation of such records are 
complete, and the volume of recorded arms has 
been begun by the entry therein of a number of 
well-authenticated coats. Printed forms and 
directions for the making of applications may 
be obtained from the Committee, and all com- 
munications on this subject should be addressed 
to the Committee on Heraldry, New England 
Historic Genealogical Society, 9 Ashburton 
Place, Boston. 

Without taking any position with reference to 
the propriety of assuming arms, the Committee 
will be glad to examine arms or heraldic devices 
which any person or organization desires to as- 
sume, and give advice as to whether the same are heraldically correct or whether 
they violate a right of exclusive use heretofore acquired by others. 




Genealogies in Preparation. — Persons of the several names are advised 
to furnish the compilers of these genealogies with records of their own families 
and other information which they think may be useful. We would suggest that 
all facts of interest illustrating family history or character be communicated, 
especially service under the U. S. Government, the holding of other offices, grad- 
uation from college or professional schools, occupation, with places and dates 
of birth, marriage, residence, and death. All names should be given in full if 
possible. No initials should be used when the full name is known.

Owing to the large number of letters received by the officers of the New England 
listoric Genealogical Society, asking for genealogical or other information, to answer 
rhich satisfactorily would in many cases require extended investigations, it has 
ecome impossible for them to give personal attention to such inquiries, nor is 
practicable to refer these letters to any of the assistants in the employ of the 
Society, because their time is fully occupied by their regular duties. The officers, 
towever, are glad to help those seeking information by calling attention to the expert 
ervices of the genealogists, book dealers, printers and publishers, engravers and 
hotographers, manufacturers of paper, etc., who advertise in the following pages, 
nquirers should make their own business arrangements with those whose names are 
iven below, as the Society assumes NO responsibility in the matter.

REGISTER 



APRIL, 1919 



HON. PRENTISS CUMMINGS, A.B., LL.B. 

By Mrs. Maky Ingraham Davies of Brookline, Mass. 

Prentiss Cummings of Brookline, Mass., a life member of the 
New England Historic Genealogical Society since 1908 and a member 
of its Council for the three years 1909-1911, died suddenly at his 
summer residence at Paris Hill, Me., 18 September 1917. He was 
born at Sumner, Me., 10 September 1840, the son of Whitney and 
Mary Hart (Prentiss) Cummings. 

Although tradition points to Scotland as the ancestral land of the 
Cummings family, no record of the birthplace or parentage of Isaac 1 
Cummings, the immigrant ancestor of the New England family to 
which Prentiss Cummings belonged, has been discovered. Isaac 1 
Cummings received a grant of 35 acres of land at Watertown, Mass., 
in 1636, was a land owner at Ipswich, Mass., as early as 25 July 1638, 
and owned a house lot in Ipswich Village 9, 2 mo. 1639. He was a 
commoner at Ipswich in 1639, and on 26, 6 mo. of the same year sold 
7 acres of land near the highway leading to Jeffries Neck. In the 
same year, also, he possessed a farm lying partly in Ipswich and 
partly in Topsfield. He was admitted freeman 18 May 1642. On 1, 
2 mo. 1652 he bought of Samuel Symonds and his wife Martha, for 
£30, a farm of 150 acres in Topsfield, and in this town he spent the 
remainder of his life, being for many years a deacon of the church 
there and holding at various times sundry town offices. He deposed 
in March 1666, aged 65 years, and died between 8, 3 mo. 1677, the 
date of his will, and 22 May 1677, the date of the inventory of his 
estate. His estate was appraised at £166. Is. 6d., with debts a- 
mounting to £19. 16s. 5d. His wife is not mentioned in his will, and 
her name is unknown. He left two sons and two daughters. 

John 2 Cummings, elder son of Isaac, was born about 1630, and 
married Sarah Howlett, daughter of Thomas and Alice (French) of 
Ipswich. He settled first in Rowley Village (later the town of Box- 
ford), Mass., where he owned land and was taxed in 1661. By his 
father's will he received the homestead of 40 acres in Topsfield, and 
he and his wife were members of the Topsfield church. About 1680 
he removed with his wife and family to Dunstable, Mass., where 
he was one of the first settlers, a selectman in 1682, and a few years 
later one of the founders of the church. He was town clerk of Dun-

stable for several years, and died 1 December 1700. His widow died 7 
December of the same year. They were the parents of eleven children. 

Their third son and third child, Nathaniel 3 Cummings, born at 
Rowley Village 10 September 1659, married at Chelmsford, Mass., 
14 April 1697, Abigail Parkhurst of Chelmsford, who was living as his 
widow on 3 February 1729. He, too, settled in Dunstable, and had 
four children, all boys. 

Nathaniel 4 Cummings of Dunstable, second son of Nathaniel, 3 was 
born at Dunstable 8 September 1699, and married Elizabeth Whit- 
ney of Stow, Mass. He died before 1760, but his wife seems to have 
survived him and to have lived to an advanced age. They had 
nine children. 

Their third son and third child was Oliver 5 Cummings, who was 
born at Dunstable 10 April 1728 and died there 15 August 1810. He 
married at Killingly, Conn., Sibyla Whitney, who was born 4 Febru- 
ary 1733 and died 16 December 1812, daughter of Israel and Hannah 
(Learned) of Groton, Mass., and Killingly, Conn. They resided at 
Dunstable, and had five children. He served with the Massachu- 
setts troops in the Revolutionary War, being captain of the Ninth 
(West Dunstable) Company in the Seventh (Middlesex County) 
Regiment, commanded by Col. Simeon Spaulding. His commission 
was issued 31 May 1776. 

His eldest child, Oliver 6 Cummings, was born at Dunstable 12 
July 1757, and died at Sumner, Me., 2 July 1823. He, also, served 
in the Revolution, being a fifer in the company of which his father 
was captain and taking part in the Battle of White Plains in 1776. 
After the War he became one of the first settlers of Sumner, Me., then 
a wilderness, migrating thither to take up a lot of land assigned either 
to him or to his father as a Revolutionary soldier. He is said to have 
felled the first tree cut in that town. After he had begun his clearing 
he found that he had made a mistake as to his location, and therefore 
he returned to Dunstable for more information. In the following 
year he went back to Sumner, made a clearing in another part of the 
town, and built a log house. As soon as he had a home to offer he 
married Betsy Bailey, who had been brought up in his father's family. 
Later he became a well-to-do farmer, and built a house, before 1800, 
which was standing in 1898. He married secondly, 1 February 1804, 
Phoebe Churchill, who was born at Plympton, Mass., 18 January 
1779, daughter of Joshua and Elizabeth (Bonney), who moved from 
Plympton to Hartford, Me., in 1800. Joshua Churchill also was a 
soldier of the Revolution.* Oliver Cummings had two children 
by his first wife and three children by his second wife. 

Whitney 7 Cummings, youngest child of Oliver 6 and Phoebe (Church- 
ill) Cummings, was born at Sumner 18 December 1808, and died 
at Buckfield, Me., 4 March 1881. He married, 27 March 1833, Mary 
Hart Prentiss, who was born at Paris, Me., 26 January 1807 and died 
at Buckfield 18 February 1878, daughter of Henry and Mary (Hart). 
Henry Prentiss, who was of Paris, was a son of Rev. Caleb and 
Pamela (Mellen) Prentiss of Reading, Mass., Pamela Mellen being a

daughter of Rev. John Mellen of Lancaster, Mass.* Mary Hart, 
whom Henry Prentiss married in 1804, was a daughter of Dr. John 
Hart of Reading, who was an Army surgeon in the Revolution, first in 
Col. William Prescott's Massachusetts regiment from 1 May 1775 
until August 1775, then in the Seventh Continental Infantry during 
the year 1776, and from 1 January 1777 in the Second Massachusetts 
Regiment, serving directly under Washington. In November 1783 
he was retained in Jackson's regiment, in the Continental Army, and 
served until 20 June 1784. He died 27 April 1826. He was ap- 
pointed by Washington one of the medical inspectors to supervise the 
execution of Andre, and a letter which he wrote about Arnold's 
treason and Andre's arrest and execution was communicated by 
Hon. Prentiss Cummings to the Register of July 1915 (vol. 69, 
pages 224-226) . Mary Hart Prentiss, who became the wife of Whit- 
ney Cummings, was a school-teacher of local note, a reader of good 
books, and an acceptable writer both in prose and verse. She was a 
frequent contributor to periodicals over the signature of "Oithona," 
and several of her poems are printed in the "History of Paris." She 
took much interest in young people, to whom she had the gift of 
imparting something of her own inspiration and ambition. Whitney 
Cummings was a farmer, first on his father's farm, later in West Sum- 
ner, and afterwards in Buckfield. At various dates he owned and 
operated all the different mills in West Sumner, and was postmaster 
from April 1837 to August 1855. He held also some of the town 
offices, and was for many years a deacon in the Baptist Church. His 
oldest child, Isabella, was married to Joseph Sprague Ingraham of 
Bangor, Me., and they were the parents of the writer of this memoir. 
His second child, Prentiss, is the subject of this memoir. A third 
child, Mellen, died young, f 

Prentiss Cummings received his early education in the public 
schools, and at the age of fourteen began work in the office of the Ox- 
ford Democrat, where he remained for three years. He then entered 
upon a college preparatory course at the Hebron (Me.) Academy, and 
continued his studies at Phillips Academy, Exeter, N. H. Graduat- 
ing at this school in 1860, he entered Harvard College, where he at- 
tained high honors, was elected to the fraternity of the Phi Beta 
Kappa in his Junior year, and received the degree of Bachelor of Arts 
in 1864. The following year he was principal of the high school at 
Portland, Me., and began the study of law in the office of Nathan 
Webb, afterwards a judge of the United States District Court. In 
the autumn of 1865 he entered the Harvard Law School, and re- 
ceived there the degree of Bachelor of Laws in 1869. While a student 
in the Law School he was, in 1866, owing to some sudden changes in 
the Harvard teaching staff, unexpectedly appointed tutor in Latin 
in the College, and was in charge of the Latin work of the Sophomore 
Class until the winter of 1870, when he entered a law office in Boston. 
In the summer of 1870 he was admitted to the bar in Boston, and 
began the practice of his profession.

86 Prentiss Cummings [April 

From 1874 to 1880 he was chief assistant to the United States 
district attorney in Boston, and had almost exclusive charge of the 
legal business of the Government in this important district. A Re- 
publican in politics, he represented, in the years 1881, 1882, and 1883, 
Ward 10, the principal business ward of Boston, in the Boston Com- 
mon Council, and in 1884 and 1885 he represented the same ward 
in the lower branch of the Massachusetts General Court. Still higher 
political honors came unsought to him a decade later, when, being 
then a resident of Brookline, Mass., he was elected for two successive 
years, 1905 and 1906, senator from the second Norfolk senatorial 
district. He declined a nomination for a third term. His far- 
reaching connections and associations — business, political, and 
social, together with his own abilities, made him a man of influence on 
Beacon Hill, and he always felt that his district was one which any 
man might be proud to represent. 

For some fifteen years Mr. Cummings was prominent in street 
railway circles. In 1885 he was elected president of the Cambridge 
Railroad, and held this office until the consolidation of the company 
in 1887 with other Boston street railway companies as the West End 
Street Railway Company. He became vice-president of the new 
company, and continued in this position until the company was 
leased in 1897 to the Boston Elevated Railway Company. He was 
then advisory counsel of the last-mentioned company until the 
winter of 1900, when having reached the age of sixty years, he with- 
drew from further participation in its management. 

In 1885 Mr. Cummings built a house in Brookline, which was 
thenceforth his home. He became active in town affairs, and was 
chairman of the School Committee, a trustee of the Public Library, 
and also a trustee of the local savings bank. From 1904 until his 
death he was president of the Mount Auburn Cemetery Corporation. 

He was a member of the Brookline Thursday Club, and a member 
and at one time president of the Boston Browning Society. Before 
both of these organizations he read from time to time papers and 
lectures on scientific and literary subjects. His early interest in the 
ancient classics led him to specialize in Homer and Homeric literature, 
and in 1910 he published a translation of the Iliad, in hexameter 
verse. His interest in genealogy was stimulated by the fact that all 
his male ancestors of the Revolutionary period, both on his father's 
and his mother's side, who were of the right age for military service, 
took an active part in the struggle for independence, and by virtue 
of his descent from Dr. John Hart, previously mentioned in this ar- 
ticle, he succeeded to membership in the Society of the Cincinnati. 
He not only served on the Council of the New England Historic 
Genealogical Society, but was a member of its Committee on Increase 
of Membership for the year 1909 and an occasional contributor to the 
Register He was also a member of the Union Club of Boston 
and president of the Boston Chess Club. For lack of space his un- 
tiring deeds of kindness to every human being who came within the 
radius of his life must remain unrecorded. 

Mr. Cummings married, 25 February 1880, Annie D. Snow of 
Cambridge, Mass., who died 5 January 1899, without issue.

The town of Jefferson, in Lincoln Co., Me., was incorporated in 
1807. The first volume of the records of the town covers the period 
from the incorporation to 1819, and the second volume the period 
from 1819 to 1830. A small, thin, calf-covered book, entitled 
1 'Records of Births and Deaths in the Town of Jefferson, Lincoln 
County, State of Maine," is marked on the inside of the front cover 
as " Volume 3rd of Records." Most of the records in this third 
volume were evidently written about 1820, and the writer appears 
to have been James Sinclair, town clerk of Jefferson for a number of 
years, who was born in Scotland and whose family record is entered 
in the book. There are, however, many additions of later date. 
The volume is badly worn, as a result of frequent handling, and in 
some cases the dates are obscure. A copy of " Volume 3rd of Rec- 
ords," made with great care in 1898, was given in 1899 by Mr. Harold 
Lewis Bond to the New England Historic Genealogical Society, and 
the first part of it is printed below. The publication of these records 
will be continued in a future number of the Register.

TAXPAYERS IN WARRENSBURG, N. Y., 1814, 1816 

From a copy of the assessment rolls in the possession op the 
New England Historic Genealogical Society 

In the possession of the New England Historic Genealogical 
Society is a typewritten copy of two assessment rolls of the real 
and personal estate in the town of "Warrensburgh," Warren Co., 
N. Y., the first roll taken 24 June 1814 by Samuel Stackhouse, 
Isaac Woodward, and John McMillen, Assessors, and the second 
roll taken 28 June 1816 by Peleg Tripp, John Griffing, and Kitchel 
Bishop, Assessors. The first roll gives in separate columns the 
taxes assessed on the real and personal estate of each taxpayer, 
and in a third column his or her total tax. The second roll gives 
the assessments on each taxpayer's real and personal estate, but 
gives the total tax in only one instance. Below are printed the 
names of the persons assessed on these two rolls. A name followed 
by the date 1814 or 1816 in parentheses is found only on the roll 
for the year thus indicated. The other names occur on both rolls, 
the spelling of a name on the roll of 1814 being followed in pa- 
rentheses by any variations in spelling found on the roll of 1816.

INSCRIPTIONS IN THE WAPPAQUIANS BURIAL GROUND, 

POMFRET, CONN., 1723-1861 

From copies in the possession of the New England Historic Genealogical 

Society 

The earliest burial ground used by the settlers in Pomfret, Conn., 
was near the meeting house; but in 1719 the town voted "That the 
burying place be removed to a more convenient place/' and accepted 
from Dea. Philemon Chandler the gift of two acres of land for that 
purpose, bounded north by Wappaquians Brook and east by the 
highway. The first person interred in the new burial ground is be- 
lieved to have been Joseph Griffin, in 1723, one of the original pro- 
prietors of the Mashamoquet Purchase, which included the territory 
of the present towns of Pomfret, Brooklyn, and Putnam, and the 
parish of Abington, Conn.* Although it is supposed that more than 
1500 persons were buried in this burial ground prior to 1862, the 
inscriptions which remain from that period make known the names 
of only about one-third of this number. 

In 1862 two residents of Pomfret, Miss Ellen Holt (afterwards Mrs. 
Henry Chandler Bowen of Brooklyn, N. Y.) and her sister, Miss 
Marian Chandler Holt (afterwards Mrs. Edward Payson Mathewson 
of Pomfret), copied these inscriptions for their uncle, George Chandler, 
A.B., M.D., of Worcester, Mass., a native of Pomfret, an eminent 
physician, the compiler of the Chandler genealogy, and a member of 
the New England Historic Genealogical Society f. Dr. Chandler, who 
died in 1893, deposited a manuscript copy of these inscriptions with 
the Society, and in 1913 Henry Smith Mathewson, A.B., M.D., of 
Pomfret, a son of Mrs. Marian Chandler (Holt) Mathewson and also 
a member of the Society, presented to the Society a typewritten 
copy which he had made from another (perhaps the original) manu- 
script copy. The inscriptions printed below have been taken from 
Dr. Mathewson's typewritten copy, compared with Dr. Chandler's 
earlier manuscript copy. They have been arranged alphabetically 
for publication, but the original division into lines given in the type- 
written copy has been disregarded, and verses or statements contain- 
ing no genealogical or biographical information have been omitted.

A report of the Committee on Papers and Essays was read, which stated that 
Mrs. Belle Seavey Floyd had presented to the Society, for use in the smaller hall, 
an antique mahogany desk and a rare piece of Wedgwood, and on motion it was

The Chair then presented, as the speaker of the afternoon, Capt. H. D. Cor- 
merais, U.S.A., of the One Hundred and First Infantry, whose subject was 
The Training of the Twenty-Sixth Division. He emphasized the fact that the 
Twenty-Sixth Division, originally composed chiefly of members of the New 
England National Guard, was the first completely equipped division to go to 
France. He described its training in France and its experiences at the front, and 
paid a sincere tribute to General Edwards, whom he called "the soul of the Divi- 
sion." The audience showed its appreciation of Captain Cormerais's narrative 
by frequent applause, and by a unanimous vote the thanks of the Society were 
extended to him for his interesting and instructive address.

unique illustrations of their primitive homes in the Old World.

gration of undesirable aliens; and then, on motion of Hosea Starr Ballou, it was 
voted to extend to the speaker the thanks of the Society for his interesting address. 

The Chair then declared the meeting dissolved, and the members of the Society, 
with their guests, enjoyed a social hour in the tea room.

ogists and publishers have used the name of the Society in con- 
nection with their own enterprises, the Society again desires to 
state that it has NO genealogical representatives in this country 
or in England, nor is it in any way connected with any publications 
other than those that it issues over its own name at 9 Ashburton 
Place, Boston.

Banister. — In the Register, vol. 69, page 352, the only information given 
about Thomas 3 Banister (Thomas, 2 Thomas 1 of Boston, Mass.) is that he was bora 
2 June 1706, and that administration on the estate of Thomas Banister of Boston, 
mariner, was granted 14 June 1726 to John Crisde of Boston, gardiner, according 
to Suffolk Probate Records, vol. 24, page 523. The following additional facts 
concerning this Thomas Banister have recently been found, 

On 19 June 1725, in the papers in a civil suit brought for Thomas 3 Banistei 
against his uncle, Samuel Banister, the surviving executor of his (Thomas's) 
grandmother Sarah's will, for a bequest at his marriage or coming of age, it is 
stated that the said Thomas had contracted marriage "and for five or six months 
last past [had] been joined together in marriage with Rebecca — ye daughter oi 
John Green of Bradford." (Suffolk Court Files.) The Vital Records of Brad- 
ford (Mass.) show that Rebeckah Green, daughter of John and Rebeckah, was 
born 9 May 1701, that Sarah Banester, daughter of Thomas and Rebeca, was 
born 28 Dec. 1725, and died (as Sarah Bannester, daughter of Thomas and Re- 
becka) 25 Jan. 1729 (that is, 1728/9, the inscription on her gravestone stating 
that she died 25 Jan. 1728, aged 3 years, 6 weeks), and that Thomas Banister 
died 8 Feb. 1725/6. The manner of Thomas Banister's death is described in a 
deposition by Nathaniel Welsh, aged 30, which states that Banister and others 
sailed for Martinico (Martinique) 5 Feb. 1725/6, in the brigantine Katherine, 
of 130 tons, John Mainwaring, master, and that on 8 Feb., in latitude 39 North, 
that is, off the mouth of Delaware Bay, the vessel shipped a prodigious sea, 
which swept overboard the captain and several of the crew, including Thomas 
Banister. (Suffolk Probate Files.) 

Maiden, Mass. Walter Kendall Watkins. 



Cunningham-Jarvis-Hopkins. — On 11 July 1830 Sarah (Jarvis) Hopkins, wife 
of William Hopkins of West Jefferson, Me., wrote to her brother, John Jarvis of 
West Cambridge (now Arlington), Mass., as follows: 

* The preceding entries are in one handwriting; but this entry and the two following entries 
are in different handwriting, although it is by no means certain that they were written by one and 
the same person. 

t Andrew Blanchard and Mary Waters were married 14 Sept. 1786. (Vital Records of Medford, 
Mass.) 

X This and the remaining entries are in still another handwriting.

Historical Intelligence 

Heraldry.— The Committee on Heraldry of the New England Historic 
Genealogical Society strongly recommends that all coats of arms which can be 

proved to be authentic be offered for record 
with this Society. The arrangements for the 
making and preservation of such records are 
complete, and the volume of recorded arms has 
been begun by the entry therein of a number of 
well-authenticated coats. Printed forms and 
directions for the making of applications may 
be obtained from the Committee, and all com- 
munications on this subject should be addressed 
to the Committee on Heraldry, New England 
Historic Genealogical Society, 9 Ashburton 
*^v>vV Place, Boston. 

^\^:^^^^^^^y^ Without taking any position with reference to 

the propriety of assuming arms, the Committee 
will be glad to examine arms or heraldic devices 
which any person or organization desires to as- 
sume, and give advice as to whether the same are heraldically correct or whether 
they violate a right of exclusive. use heretofore acquired by others.

158 Notes [Api 

Alumni Cantabrigienses. — The following circular, dated at Caius Colleg 
Cambridge, 1 Feb. 1919, has been received from Dr. John Venn, F.R.S., of Vicar 
brook, Chaucer Road, Cambridge, by whom it is signed: 

"A Notice has been issued, by the Cambridge University Press, that an Alum 
Cantabrigienses is in preparation. It will be on the general lines of Mr Jc 
Foster's well-known Alumni Oxonienses, but will be, it is hoped, in several respec 
more complete in its extent. It is, in fact, proposed to include every kno^ 
Cambridge name, from the earliest historical date, i.e. from about 1250. 

"The experience I have gained from similar work in the case of a single Collei 
(Gonville and Caius) has convinced me that much loss would be avoided if tho 
interested in such an undertaking could send information before publicatio 
What I have found is that after publication the compiler receives a large amoui 
of useful information and many corrections when it is too late to make public u 
of them. 

"What I would suggest is that every one who can supply facts about any Car 
bridge man, of a private kind, or which from any cause do not get into ordina 
printed records, should communicate them to me. This would apply especial 
to family histories and pedigrees. Further assistance would be welcomed fro 
those who have devoted attention to such special branches of research as coun 
or parochial history, the records of any particular school or profession, membe 
of Parliament, titled persons, etc. The sooner such information can be sent t 
better. 

"These remarks apply especially to Part I of the work, 1250-1752, which co 
tains nearly 80,000 names, as to many of which we have, at present, no furth 
information beyond what is contained in the College Admission Registers ai 
Graduati" 

In a letter, dated 18 Apr. 1919, which accompanies the circular, Dr. Venn writ 
that he is sure that the circular will "meet with a response from many on your si 
of the water. . . . Cambridge played such an important part in the early 1: 
of New England that I hope to get many suggestions." 



Vital Records of Vermont. — William Taft Slayton, M.D., of Morrisvil 
Vt., a member of the New England Historic Genealogical Society, as Chairm 
of the Committee on Public Health in the Vermont House of Representatives, i 
troduced in the recent session of the Legislature a bill to provide for the coi 
pletion of the vital records of the State, and this bill was enacted into law a] 
reads as follows: 

No. 92. An Act to provide for the Completion of the Vital Records of t 
State and to require Town Clerks to transmit Certain Records to the Secreta 
of State. 

It is hereby enacted by the General Assembly of the State of Vermont: 

Section 1. The secretary of state shall, as soon as practicable after the passa 
of this act, ascertain from what towns and for what years complete returns 
births, marriage and deaths have not been made to the state, or are not to be foui 
among the records of his office, and shall convey this information to the cler 
of such towns, together with suitable blanks upon which to make returns. 

Sec. 2. Such town clerks shall, under the direction of the secretary of stai 
cause to be transcribed in full upon said blanks all records of births, marriag 
and deaths in the possession of the town, and churches, not already returned, a]

reasonable time as may be allowed by him, and for such service the town cle 
or person performing the service shall receive from the town the sum of five cer 
for each record so transcribed, certified and transmitted. If the death recor 
of a town prior to 1870 are incomplete, the secretary of state shall notify t 
selectmen of said town to that effect. The selectmen of such town shall, befc 
October 1, 1919, cause to be copied at the expense of the town under the directi 
of the secretary of state, the inscriptions] on all gravestones in their town erect 
to the memory of any person who died prior to 1870 so far as relates to name 
deceased, date of death, age or date of birth, if given, and the name of the cemete 
where buried and shall cause such records to be recorded in the town recorc 
The secretary of state shall furnish the town clerk of said town suitable bla]

in this section, not later than January 1, 1920. 

Sec. 3. All records returned in accordance with the provisions of this act shall

Genealogies in Prepakation. — Persons of the several names are advised 
to furnish the compilers of these genealogies with records of their own families 
and other information which they think may be useful. We would suggest that

especially service under the U. S. Government, the holding of other offices, grad- 
uation from college or professional schools, occupation, with places and dates 
of birth, marriage, residence, and death. All names should be given in full if 
possible. No initials should be used when the full name is known.

I Owing to the large number of letters received by the officers of the New England 
istoric Genealogical Society, asking for genealogical or other information, to answer 
jich satisfactorily would in many cases require extended investigations, it has 
home impossible for them to give personal attention to such inquiries, nor is 
jpracticable to refer these letters to any of the assistants in the employ of the 
jciety, because their time is occupied fully by their regular duties. The officers, 
pever, are glad to help those seeking information by calling attention to the expert 
[vices of the genealogists, book dealers, printers and publishers, engravers and 
>tographers, manufacturers of paper, etc., who advertise in the following pages, 
uirers should make their own business arrangements with those whose names are 
en below, as the Society assumes NO responsibility in the matter.

JULY, 1919 



HON. LOUIS ATWOOD COOK 

By George Walter Chamberlain, M.S., of Maiden, Mass. 

Louis Atwood Cook of Weymouth, Mass., a resident member of 
the New England Historic Genealogical Society since 1907, died at 
his summer home at Bayside in Weymouth on Thursday, 16 May 
1918, aged seventy-one years and twelve days. His last visit to the 
Society's building was made on 1 May 1918, when he attended the 
regular meeting of the Council, to which he had been elected, at the 
annual meeting of the Society on 6 February 1918, for the three 
years 1918-1920. 

He was born at Blackstone, Mass., 4 May 1847, the elder son of 
Louis and Orinda Ballou (Cook) Cook, who were residents of that 
part of ancient Mendon which was set off, 25 March 1845, as the 
town of Blackstone. He was descended in at least five lines from 
Walter 1 Cook, who settled in Weymouth as early as 1643 and, with 
eleven other families, removed to the Quinshepaug Plantation, now 
the town of Mendon, in 1663. His direct paternal line from Walter 1 
was through Nicholas, 2 Noah, 3 Ichabod, 4 Ichabod, 6 and Louis, 6 his 
father. His mother, Orinda Ballou Cook, was a daughter of Zimri 
and Olive W. (Allen) Cook, and his paternal grandmother, Louisa 
Cook, was a daughter of Thaddeus and Rhoda (Ballou) Cook, both 
mother and grandmother being of Mendon and being descendants 
of Walter 1 Cook. He also claimed descent from Keziah Cook, 
daughter of Noah 3 Cook by his second wife, Olive Gaskill. In fact, 
Judge Cook was often heard to remark that he was "well cooked.' ' 
His Ballou line of descent was from Maturin 1 Ballou, who settled in 
Providence, R. I., as early as 1645, through James, 2 Obadiah, 3 Ezekiel, 4 
Levi, 5 and Rhoda, 6 one of his great-grandmothers. Among his other 
ancestors were Benjamin Albee, an early settler of Brainfree and 
Mendon, Mass., and Thomas Thayer, who came to Brain tree from 
Thornbury in Gloucestershire, England. 

Judge Cook's father was a teacher in a Friends' school at Prov- 
idence, but his early death, before his elder son had attained the 
age of three years, gave that son the opportunity to become a self- 
made man. His boyhood was spent on the "Candlewood" farm in 
Blackstone. His early education was obtained in the public schools 
of Blackstone and at Woonsocket, R. I., and from the Woonsocket

High School he entered Phillips Exeter Academy, where he was 
graduated in 1869. 

For several years he was a school-teacher, first at Bellingham and 
Blackstone, Mass., afterwards at Smithfield and Manville, R. L, 
and from 1872 on at Weymouth, where he was principal of the Bates 
Grammar School until he resigned this position to enter upon a 
larger service on 1 Jan. 1880. 

While teaching he had taken up the study of law. Under the 
direction of Judge James Humphrey of Weymouth he continued this 
study, and was admitted to the bar in 1884. With William J. 
Coughlan and Daniel J. Coughlan he then formed the law firm of 
Cook and Coughlan, which had offices in Abington, South Wey- 
mouth, and Boston. 

In 1896 he was appointed associate justice of the East Norfolk Dis- 
trict Court, established at Quincy, and in November of the same 
year he was elected clerk of the Superior Court of Norfolk County, 
filling both positions with ability and satisfaction until the day of his 
death — a period of nearly twenty-two years. As a judge of the acts 
and omissions of his fellow men he showed a scrupulous regard for 
the established rules of evidence and allowed full time for the argu- 
ments of counsel, who were compelled to prepare each case with the 
greatest care. When he had patiently ascertained the facts, he 
endeavoured to apply the law thereto; and when his decision 
was rendered, the litigants felt that their cause had been fully 
heard. 

In politics he was a Republican, and represented Weymouth in the 
General Court in 1880, 1889, and 1890. In 1892 he needed only one 
more vote to secure the nomination for the State Senate. As a 
member of the Legislature he was a strong man, upholding the 
principles of temperance and exercising great influence in the passage 
of the so-called "Screen Law." 

As a public speaker Judge Cook was an earnest, forceful, and patri- 
otic supporter of the best American ideals and institutions. 

He was deeply interested in Colonial and family history, was vice- 
president of the Weymouth Historical Society, and had been president 
of the Mendon Historical Society. He made a special study of the 
history of the settlement of Weymouth, consulting original sources 
of information which the late Gilbert Nash and the late Charles 
Francis Adams and their associates had apparently not discovered. 
For more than twenty years he had been engaged in preparing a 
genealogy of the descendants of Walter 1 Cook. These valuable 
manuscripts, however, remain unpublished. 

In 1914 Judge Cook visited England, to represent the town of 
Weymouth, Mass., at the ceremonies connected with the unveiling, 
in the borough of Weymouth in Dorsetshire, of a monument in 
memory of Richard Clark of Weymouth, master of the ship Delight, 
which accompanied Sir Humphrey Gilbert on his voyage to New- 
foundland in 1583, and of John Endicott, Governor of the Colony 
of the Massachusetts Bay, who sailed in 1628 from that ancient sea- 
port to the shores of New England. Judge Cook's reception on that 
occasion and his address, in which he extended to the English borough 



1919] Early Vital Records of Jefferson, Me. 165 

the greetings of its Massachusetts namesake, were prominent features 
of the celebration. 

In his home town Judge Cook was for a long time a member of the 
Park Commission, he was a trustee of the Tufts Public Library, he 
served for eight years as a member of the School Committee — he had 
previously been for three years a member of the School Committee 
of Blackstone, and for twenty-six years he was elected moderator of 
the annual town meeting at Weymouth. He was prominent in 
the Independent Order of Odd Fellows and in other fraternal 
organizations, and in early life affiliated himself with the Union 
Congregational Church of South Weymouth, one of his last acts 
being to help in establishing a permanent union of the Union Church 
and the Old South Church — for years rivals — in the village of South 
Weymouth. 

Like many men active in public life, he was at times bitterly as- 
sailed. In the face of attacks, however, he remained silent. No 
harsh words fell from his lips. Kindness overcame the bitterness of 
his enemies. He won. 

He married, 22 February 1876, Lucinda Aldrich Clark, born at 
Smithfield, R. I., 29 November 1858, daughter of Joseph Stevens and 
Mercy Maria (Aldrich) Clark. Mrs. Cook survives her husband; 
and their three children, all of whom are living, are Louis Aldrich, 
B.A. (Yale, 1900), a lawyer, Sidney Rogers, B. A. (Yale, 1905), editor 
of The Canadian Weekly, which is published in Toronto, Canada, 
and Florence Maria, sometime a student at Vassar College and now 
a teacher of the Montessorri system of training children.

INSCRIPTIONS IN THE CEMETERY 
AT EAST BAKERSFIELD, VT. 

Copied and communicated by Herbert Williams Denio, A.M., 

of New York City 

The following inscriptions, all that are now to be found in the 
cemetery at East Bakersfield, Franklin Co., Vt., were copied verbatim 
on 19 Aug. 1918. The appearance of the ground indicates that 
there are many unmarked graves; but there have been no interments 
in this cemetery for some forty years, the inscription of latest certain 
date being that on the gravestone of Benjamin Upton, who died 1 Jan. 
1877. In this copy words which appear entirely in capital letters on 
the gravestones have been reproduced with the initial letters only capi- 
talized. The punctuation of the original inscriptions has been fol- 
lowed as closely as possible, but in doubtful cases the usual present- 
day punctuation has been given.

*In the journal the heading for the deaths of a given year is usually "Deaths in Newington" 01 
"Died in Newington," but the entries show that some of the deaths occurred elsewhere. 

tin the journal the date of Richard Dame's death is given as 1814, July 10; but, as this entrj 
immediately follows the two entries of Aug. 28, 1824, "1814" may be an error for "1824." — Editor 

JNo year is given in the journal for the death of Widow Betty Bickford; but the entry immedi 
atcly follows the record of the death of Richard Dame, and apparently belongs among the entriei 
for 1824.— Editor.

BURIALS IN THE BAPTIST CEMETERY, 
STEPHENTOWN, N. Y. 

From a manuscript in the possession of the New England Historic 

Genealogical Society 

The town of Stephentown, Rensselaer Co., N. Y., was formed 
29 Mar. 1784 from Rensselaerswyck, and was named in honor of 
Stephen Van Rensselaer. It is situated in the southeastern corner of 
the county, and is bounded on the east by the town of Hancock, 
in Berkshire Co., Mass. The settlement of the territory now com- 
prised in Stephentown began about 1765, the early settlers coming 
from Connecticut and Rhode Island. On the hill back of Stephen- 
town Village is the Baptist cemetery, one of the oldest in the town, 
which was probably set apart as a burial ground about the time of 
the organization of the Baptist Church, that is, about 1795 or 1796. 
In this cemetery many of the early inhabitants of the town are buried. 

In 1903 the late James Swift Rogers, A. B., a distinguished member 
of the New England Historic Genealogical Society, presented to the 
Library of the Society a manuscript of twenty-nine pages, written 
in pencil, and bearing the heading "Names of persons buried in the 
Baptist cemetery in Stephentown, N. Y." It is evident that the 
manuscript does not contain a verbatim copy of the inscriptions in the 
cemetery, but it does give the names and dates found on the grave- 
stones. The pencilled writing will in a few years become illegible, 
and the paper is far from durable; and therefore the contents of the 
manuscript are printed below, in order to ensure their preservation. 

Much information about the settlement of Stephentown and the 
families of the early settlers is given in Sylvester's " History of Rens- 
selaer Co., New York," published in Philadelphia in 1880, pages 491- 
501, and six inscriptions in the Baptist cemetery, printed verbatim 
in that volume, have been substituted in this article for the briefer 
statements found in the Rogers manuscript. Another inscription, 
that in memory of Capt. Israel Piatt, winch does not appear at all in 
the manuscript, is reproduced verbatim from the "History," and from 
that book also the death record of Caleb Saunders has been taken. 
Probably some of the inscriptions which were legible when the 
"History" was compiled had already disappeared when the facts given 
in the Rogers manuscript were collected. 

It should be stated that the Rogers manuscript apparently makes 
no distinction between such expressions as "aged 58 years" and "in 
the 58th year of his age."

declared the meeting dissolved, and the members of the Society, with their guests, 
enjoyed a social hour in the tea room. 



NOTES 

It having come to the attention of this Society that certain geneal- 
ogists and publishers have used the name of the Society in con- 
nection with their own enterprises, the Society again desires to 
state that it has NO genealogical representatives in this country 
or in England, nor is it in any way connected with any publications 
other than those that it issues over its own name at 9 Ashburton

George Hall's Letter to his Sister. — Richard Hall of Boston, Gentleman, 
one of several Richard Halls who lived in Boston in the first half of the eighteenth 
century,* in his will, dated 19 Apr. 1744 and proved 3 July 1744, mentions his sons 
John, George, Richard, William, Charles, and James, and his daughters Constance 
Woodhouse and Mary Hall. The son James and the daughter Mary were executors 
of the will. (Suffolk Probate Records, vol. 37, fo. 185.) James married in Boston, 
11 May 1749, Mary Lincoln, both he and his bride being called of Hingham 

*For records of various Richard Halls in Boston see Publications of The Colonial Society of 
Massachusetts, vol. 14, pp. 400-405.

(Boston Marriages, 1700-1751, page 250). He was a poll-tax payer in Hingham 
in 1749, and an account of him and of his children and grandchildren may be 
found in the "History of the Town of Hingham," vol. 2, pages 283-284. The 
statement there made, however, that James was probably related to the Halls 
of Dorchester or Taunton, must be regarded as incorrect. James's sister Constance 
married in Boston, 12 July 1726, William Woodhouse (Boston Marriages, 1700- 
1751, page 136). What became of five of the six other children of Richard 
Hall of Boston, viz., John, Richard, William, Charles, and Mary, has not been 
discovered; but the letter given below accounts for the disappearance of their 
brother George from the New England records, showing that he was in North 
Carolina in 1751, was then married, and had a son named James. According to 
the United States Census of 1790 there was at that time, in the region from which 
the letter was written, a James Hall, and he may have been the son mentioned 
in the letter. 

The letter is printed from a copy of a copy made by the late Hattie M. 6 Hall of 
Everett, Mass., whose father, George 5 Hall (George 4 of Cohasset, James 3 of 
Hingham, James 2 of Hingham, Richard 1 of Boston), was a brother of Henry K. s 
Hall, late of Chelsea, Mass., the father of the contributor of this note. The letter 
follows :

Having this opportunity to write unto you I send these few lines to you to acquant 
you that I am in good health hoping you are in the Same. I here my father is 
dead & I Desire you to Send me word how his Estate was manged & if there was

Ancestry of Hon. Andrew Dickson White, LL.D., D.C.L. — In the memoir 
of the late Hon. Andrew Dickson White, LL.D., D.C.L., an honorary member of 
the New England Historic Genealogical Society, which was published in the Sup- 
plement to the Register of April 1919, the following statement is made (page lxi) : 
"A tradition that he was descended from Peregrine White of the Mayflower he 
never took pains to verify; but his grandparents, early settlers in New York, were 
from Massachusetts — Asa White from Monson and Andrew Dickson from Mid- 
dlefield." 

This was, indeed, substantially all that was known by Mr. White regarding his 
ancestry at the time (1905) when he published his "Autobiography," but much 
more was learned during the later years of his life. In that very summer of 1905 
the writer of this communication, acting on the wish of a daughter of Mr. White 
to know more of her father's ancestral line, spent his vacation in New England, 
and, with the solid aid of land and probate records, traced Mr. White's paternal 
ancestry back to the seventeenth century. Mr. White was himself much in- 
terested, and in the last vigorous summer of his life visited some of the homes of 
his ancestors, learning at Guilford, Conn., the home of his maternal grandmother, 
Ruth Hall, her full American pedigree. His paternal line is as follows: 

He was a descendant of John 1 White, who a little before the middle of the 
seventeenth century, in partnership with James Phips, father of Sir William 
Phips, bought a large tract of land at Nequasset (now Woolwich), Me., on the 
eastern side of the Kennebec River, opposite the present city of Bath. After the 
death of James Phips this John White married his widow, Mary, and became by 
her the father of eight children. One of these children, Philip 2 White, later of 
Beverly, Mass., was through his descendants, Andrew, 3 Andrew, 4 Asa, 5 Asa, 6 and 
Horace, 7 the ancestor of Andrew Dickson 8 White. 

In an article entitled "James Lane of North Yarmouth, Me., and His Descend- 
ants," contributed to the Register of April 1888 (vol. 42) by Rev. James P. Lane, 
it is asserted (page 152), on the authority of William M. Sargent, Esq., of Portland, 
Me., now deceased, an able student of Maine genealogy, that John White of 
Nequasset was "the son of Nicholas White . . . , who in 1639 was employed 



238 Notes [July 

by Trelawney in fishing voyages" and who later owned lands in Casco Bay. 
There is, however, grave reason to doubt this parentage.

Ancestry of Elizabeth, Wife of Thomas Grosse. — So far as the writer is 
aware, no one has hitherto offered any proof of the maiden name of Elizabeth, 
wife of Thomas 3 Grosse (Clement, 2 Isaac 1 ) of Boston. The suggestion that she 
was a Harrison must now be given up. She named her first three children Hannah, 
Elizabeth, and Abigail. Now Nicholas and Hannah (Salter) Phillips had three 
children thus named, who, with their sister Sarah, were all baptized together 6, 
3 mo. 1666 (Boston Births, Baptisms, Marriages, and Deaths, 1630-1699, page 
102), and this gives a possibility to be proved or disproved. 

In 1679 a parcel of dry goods, bought in Boston, was lost in transit by water to 
Ipswich, and the owner, Roger Darby, who had married in 1668 Lucretia Hillman, 
sued the carrier, Samuel 3 Dutch (Robert, 2 Osman 1 ), who had married in 1673 
Abigail Giddings. Among the fourteen papers preserved about this interesting 
case are two depositions of importance (Suffolk Court Files, 1894). On 21 Apr. 
1680 "Abigaill Phillips, aged eighteen years or thereabouts, Testifieth and Saith 
that some short time before the late great fire in Boston, the sayd deponent then 
Keeping here sister Grosses shop did sell to Dutch of Ipswich three p'cells of blew 
lening," etc. Samuel 3 Dutch, it may be said, born in 1650, was a grandson of 
Richard Kimball of Rattlesden, co. Suffolk, Eng., and Abigail Phillips's grand- 
father, George Salter, also was of Rattlesden. On the same date, 21 Apr. 1680, 
"Elizabeth Grosse, aged twenty six yeares or thereabouts testifieth and saith that 
Mrs. Darby of Ipswich came to me the sd. deponent, And Asked me whether the 
Dutches did buy of me any goods since the fire in Boston and I answered her that 
they had bought none that I knew of but what they might buy of my sister 
Abigaill Phillips who sometime kept my shop," etc. Elizabeth Phillips was born 
24 Feb. 1652/3 (Boston Births, Baptisms, Marriages, and Deaths. 1630-1699, 
page 36), and her sister Abigail was born 20 Feb. 1662 [1661/2] (Savage). 

Now we know of no Grosse in Boston in 1680, with wife Elizabeth, except 
Thomas 3 (Clement, 2 Isaac 1 ), born before 1649. This is the Thomas Grosse of 
Suffolk Deeds, lib. 24, fo. 262: 10 Feb. 1692, "Thomas Pemberton of Boston, 
Barber Chyrurgeon, and Hannah his wife, one of the daughters of Nicholas 
Phillips, late of Boston, Victualler, dec'd; Christopher Goffe of Boston, marriner, 
and Abigail his wife, one other of the dec'd's daughters; John Smith of Boston, 
marriner, and Sarah his wife, another of the deceased's daughters; and Thomas 
Phillips of Boston, Taylor, son of said dec'd, and Mary [(Howard)] his wife" sell to 
"Thomas Gross of the same Boston, shopkeeper, a peice or parcel of land, on part 
of which standeth the tenement or dwelling of him, said Gross, on Conduit St. 
[later Ann Street, now North Street.] The above named covenant that they are 
the true sole and lawful owners of all afore bargained premisses." Lastly, "John 
Ruggles victualler, and Hannah his present wife, heretofore the relict widow of 
the sd. Nicholas Phillips, and mother of his aforesaid surviving children," agree 
and consent. Though dated 10 Feb. 1692, this deed was not recorded till 2 Dec. 
1709. This is the land referred to in Suffolk Court Files, 4404, 22 Dec. 1697, 
as sold to Nicholas Phillips by James Everill on 25 May 1666, but the deed was 
not recorded till 2 Dec. 1709 (Suffolk Deeds, lib. 24, fo. 261). 

Abigail Phillips, born in 1662, married (1) about 1687 Christopher Goffe, who 
died 1 May 1699 (Boston Births, Baptisms, Marriages, and Deaths, 1630-1699, 
page 252); she married (2) 28 Oct. 1699 (ib.) Samuel 3 Wentworth (Samuel, 8 
William 1 ), born in 1666. Her daughter Rachel Goffe, born 2 Mar. 1694/5 (ib., 
page 214), married (1) 15 Nov. 1711 William Partridge (Boston Marriages, 1700- 
1751, page 36), and (2) 10 Aug. 1721 Francis Gatcomb (ib., page 100). Widow 
Rachel (Goffe) Gatcomb in her will, proved 24 Nov. 1752 (Suffolk Probate 
Records, vol. 47, fo. 144), leaves first of all a sum of money to her "beloved kins- 
woman Huldah Grosse." This Huldah Grosse, daughter of Thomas 3 and Eliza- 
beth (Phillips) Grosse, was born 13 Sept. 1685 (Boston Births, Baptisms, Mar- 
riages, and Deaths, 1630-1699, page 165), and was first cousin of Rachel (Goffe) 
Gatcomb. All the evidence, then, is cumulative and points in one direction. 

The line of Hannah Salter, wife of Nicholas Phillips, can be traced back, through 
her mother, for five generations. Elizabeth 4 Winthrop (William 3 and Elizabeth 



1919] Notes 239 

(Norwood), Adam, 2 Adam 1 ), first cousin of Gov. John 4 Winthrop (Adam, 3 Adam, 2 
Adam 1 ), was baptized 24 Apr. 1569, and her will was proved 17 Oct. 1631. She 
married Rev. Humphrey 4 Munning (Humphrey, 3 Thomas, 2 Henry 1 ), Rector of 
Brettenham, co. Suffolk, Eng. Their daughter, Elizabeth 6 Munning, married at 
Rattlesden, co. Suffolk, 29 Oct. 1617, George Salter, as is noted in the diary of 
Adam 3 Winthrop. (Cf. also Register, vol. 57, page 331.) The will of George 
Salter of Dedham, co. Essex, Eng., grazier, dated 7 Sept. 1653 and proved 18 
July 1654 (ib., vol. 48, page 128), and that of his widow, Elizabeth, of the same 
place, dated 1 Dec. 1660 and proved 15 June 1662 (ib., vol. 55, page 107), both 
mention, with other children, daughters Abigail and Hannah, both in New 
England, the will of their mother naming them as Abigail Hammond and Hannah 
Phillips. 

Hannah 2 Salter, called Anne in the baptismal record at Rattlesden, 19 Dec. 1630 
(ib., vol. 57, page 331), married (1) in Boston, 4, 10 mo. 1651, Nicholas Phillips 
(Boston Births, Baptisms, Marriages, and Deaths, 1630-1699, page 34), whose 
ancestry is unknown. He is called shopkeeper and, later, victualler, and died 
Tuesday, 15 Mar. 1669/70 (Suffolk Probate Records, vol. 7, fo. 37). The in- 
ventory of his estate amounted to £400. 15s. 9d. Widow Hannah (Salter) 
Phillips married (2) before 3 Nov. 1671, when their daughter Ruth was born 
(Boston Births, Baptisms, Marriages, and Deaths, 1630-1699, page 120), John 2 
Ruggles (Samuel 1 of Boston), who died after 10 Feb. 1692 (Suffolk Deeds, lib. 
24, fo. 262) and before 5 May 1696 (ib. lib. 47, fo. 255). "Hanah Rugles Died 
Janr. 3," 1696/7 (Boston Births, Baptisms, Marriages, and Deaths, 1630-1699, 
page 230). 

Thomas 3 Grosse died after 10 Feb. 1692 (Suffolk Deeds, lib. 24, fo. 262) and 
prior to 9 Oct. 1695, the date of the marriage intention of his widow, Elizabeth, 
and Joseph Eldridge (Boston Marriages, 1700-1751, page 348). She was the 
second wife of Joseph Eldridge. Widow Elizabeth Eldridge administered the 
estate of Joseph Eldridge, mariner, 8 Feb. 1697/8 (Suffolk Probate Records, vol. 
8, fo. 95). The inventory, 12 May 1698, amounted to £1281. 5s. 10d., and men- 
tions plate belonging to her former husband, Thomas Grosse (ib., vol. 8, fo. 167). 

Widow Elizabeth Eldridge married (3) 13 May 1699 (Boston Births, Baptisms, 
Marriages, and Deaths, 1630-1699, page 251) Elias Heath, merchant, who figures 
in Dunton's letters. His will was proved 8 Nov. 1706 (Suffolk Probate Records, 
vol. 16, f 0.198). 

Widow Elizabeth Heath married (4) 29 Dec. 1709 (Boston Marriages, 1700- 
1751, page 21) Francis Burroughs, merchant. In his will, proved 11 Dec. 1713 
(Suffolk Probate Records, vol. 18, fo. 199), he mentions "Huldah Grosse, unmar- 
ried daughter of my said wife Elizabeth," as well as his wife's married daughters. 

Widow Elizabeth Burroughs administered the estate of her son, Thomas 4 
Grosse, 28 Mar. 1719/20, his widow, Phebe, giving a release in her favor (Suffolk 
Probate Records, vol. 21, fo. 674). From Suffolk Deeds, lib. 53, fo. 209, 5 Jan. 
1736, it is clear that Elizabeth Burroughs was then dead; therefore Elizabeth 
Phillips, born 24 Feb. 1652/3 and four times wedded, died later than 28 Mar. 
1719/20 and prior to 5 Jan. 1736. 

Of the daughters of Thomas 3 Grosse, Hannah married Nathaniel 2 Halsey 
(James 1 ), Elizabeth married John 2 Greenough (William 1 and Ruth Swift), Abigail 
married Joseph Shippen, Mary married John 2 Phillips (Henry 1 of Dedham), and 
Jerusha married John 3 Fayerweather (John, 2 Thomas 1 ); his only son, Thomas 4 
Grosse, married Phebe 2 Penhallow (1695-1775), daughter of Samuel 1 and Mary 
(Cutts). The identification of the wife of Thomas 3 Grosse as Elizabeth 2 Phillips 
will therefore be of some interest to descendants in these families.

Fry-Brooke. — Capt. Richard Fry of Boston was one of the early paper makers 
of New England, and a petition, dated 22 June 1739, from him to the Governor 
and General Court of the Province of the Massachusetts Bay in New England, to- 
gether with other information about him, maj r be found in Register, vol. 29, pages 
159-162. In the petition of 22 June 1739 he mentions "his New England born 
son, James Brook Fry." On 27 Aug. 1745 administration was granted in Boston 
to Martha Frye on the estate of her husband, Richard Frye, paper maker, of 
Boston. On 18 Feb. 1749 [1749/50, intention 23 Dec. 1749] Robert Hewes and

Notes 



[July 



Ann Frey were married in King's Chapel, Boston. On 30 May 1751 Robert 
Hewes, tanner, of Boston, was appointed guardian of his sister-in-law, Martha 
Frye, a minor aged about ten years, daughter of Richard Frye late of Boston, 
paper maker, to receive her portion of an estate from her uncle, James Brooke of 
London, deceased. On 20 June 1762 Shubael Hewes, nephew of Robert Hewes, 
married Martha Frye. Their oldest child was Ann Frye Hewes and their sixth 
child was Richard Brooke Hewes. The following letter, found among the Hewes 
Papers, which are now deposited with the Bostonian Society, furnishes information 
about the English relatives of this family.

Historical Intelligence 



Heraldry. — The Committee on Heraldry of the New England Historic 
Genealogical Society strongly recommends that all coats of arms which can be 

proved to be authentic be offered for record 
with this Society. The arrangements for the 
making and preservation of such records are 
complete, and the volume of recorded arms has 
been begun by the entry therein of a number of 
well-authenticated coats. Printed forms and 
directions for the making of applications may 
be obtained from the Committee, and all com- 
munications on this subject should be addressed 
to the Committee on Heraldry, New England 
Historic Genealogical Society, 9 Ashburton 
Place, Boston. 

Without taking any position with reference to 
the propriety of assuming arms, the Committee 
will be glad to examine arms or heraldic devices 
which any person or organization desires to as- 
sume, and give advice as to whether the same are heraldically correct or whether 
they violate a right of exclusive use heretofore acquired by others.

Genealogies in Preparation. — Persons of the several names are advised 
to furnish the compilers of these genealogies with records of their own families 
and other information which they think may be useful. We would suggest that 
all facts of interest illustrating family history or character be communicated, 
especially service under the U. S. Government, the holding of other offices, grad- 
uation from college or professional schools, occupation, with places and dates 
of birth, marriage, residence, and death. All names should be given in full if 
possible. No initials should be used when the full name is known.

Owing to the large number of letters received by the officers of the New England 
Historic Genealogical Society, asking for genealogical or other information, to answer 
which satisfactorily would in many cases require extended investigations, it has 
become impossible for them to give personal attention to such inquiries, nor is 
it practicable to refer these letters to any of the assistants in the employ of the 
Society, because their time is occupied fully by their regular duties. The officers, 
however, are glad to help those seeking information by calling attention to the expert 
services of the genealogists, book dealers, printers and publishers, engravers and 
photographers, manufacturers of paper, etc., who advertise in the following pages. 
Inquirers should make their own business arrangements with those whose names are 
[given below, as the Society assumes NO responsibility in the matter.

OCTOBER, 1919 



ANDREW CARNEGIE, LL.D. 

By Lawrence Brainerd of Cambridge, Mass. 

From the active arena of affairs in which he was long so dominant 
a factor, Andrew Carnegie, LL.D., Laird of Skibo, humanitarian, 
and world-famed philanthropist, has passed on to that reward 
which, in human judgment, is so fittingly his due. The end came 
at Shadowbrook, his summer home at Lenox in the Berkshires, on 
11 August 1919. Scarcely could the death of any other citizen, in 
strictly unofficial life, have caused a greater note of sorrow or 
received more attentive consideration on the part of the American 
public. 

Andrew Carnegie was born, amid humble surroundings but of 
eminently respected parentage, at Dunfermline, Fifeshire, Scotland, 
25 November 1835. The incidents of his boyhood life, his experi- 
ence as a weaver — the occupation of his immediate forbears, and 
his development until his arrival, at the age of thirteen, in America 
are too well known to demand minute review or elaboration of 
detail in a brief memoir of this unique, versatile, and admittedly 
remarkable man of genius. 

It has been aptly said that the achievements of his business career 
and the accumulation of his great material fortune are symbolic 
of the possibilities of American commercialism; but the generous 
distribution of this vast wealth, the wisdom and sagacity of his 
noble benefactions, furnish a lesson unlimited by any national 
boundaries or standards, and show the giver to have been the 
disciple of a remarkable altruism and truly "One who loved his 
fellow men." 

His was not a flagrant or vulgar philanthropy, but a striking 
evidence of careful deliberation and intelligent discrimination as 
to the expediency and need of each individual cause which came 
under the spell of his almost unbounded liberality. 

His first American home was in Pittsburgh, Pa., a city which 
became, largely through his efforts and activities, one of the great 
steel centres of the world. His career in the land of his adoption 
reads indeed like a romance, for the poor immigrant youth of 1848 
was destined in four decades to become, through his own sincerity 
of purpose and indomitable energy, one of the great international 

VOL. LXXIII. 16 



244 Andrew Carnegie [Oct, 

captains of industry, the world's leading producer of steel, and the 
•possessor of a private fortune exceeded only by that of one othei 
American. 

During the dark days of the great struggle for the preservation 
of the Union, Mr. Carnegie was appointed director of Government 
railways and telegraphs in the East, and discharged the duties oi 
this important post with the highest acceptance. 

His first actual venture in the iron market was an investmenl 
of $1,500, borrowed money, in 1865; and thirty-six years later, w 
1901, upon his retirement from business activities, he sold his private 
interests in the steel industry to the United States Steel Corporator 
for a sum exceeding one-quarter of a billion. 

It is conservatively estimated that Mr. Carnegie's gifts to charit- 
able institutions, libraries, and public foundations during his life- 
time exceeded $350,000,000. 

He established the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement oi 
Teaching, with a total fund of $15,000,000, the scope of whicl 
includes the promotion and efficiency of educational work and the 
pensioning of college professors. In 1911 he capitalized this edu- 
cational benevolence so that his benefactions might continue afte] 
his decease, by establishing the Carnegie Corporation, with a func 
of $25,000,000. One of his greatest and most ardent ideals was the 
abolition of .war; and he contributed $10,000,000 towards an inter- 
national Peace Fund and built the Peace Palace at The Hague 
which was dedicated in 1913. His establishment of the Carnegie 
Hero Fund, providing medals and pensions for acts of heroism, was 
another notable and unique conception of his benevolent mind. Hi; 
gifts were not confined to America alone, but foreign lands anc 
particularly his beloved mother country profited by his substantia 
charities. 

Mr. Carnegie was deeply interested in music, and provided hun- 
dreds of churches and other institutions with costly organs. One 
of his earliest gifts was the Carnegie Music Hall in New York, whict 
cost $2,000,000; and as president of the New York Philharmoni< 
Society he gave large sums for the furtherance of this society's 
ideals. 

In 1901 he established his legal home in New York City, where 
at the corner of Fifth Avenue and Ninetieth Street, he built a digni- 
fied and costly mansion. In the same year, also, he purchased the 
celebrated Sklbo Castle in Scotland. This charming estate, con- 
taining an acreage of many square miles along the Highland coasl 
of his native land, was the summer home of Mr. Carnegie for severa 
years. As master of his baronial structure he was affectionately 
called "the Laird of Skibo." An interesting detail in the appoint 
ments of this Scottish home is the fact that at Mr. Carnegie's per- 
sonal dictation the main flagstaff of the castle flew to the breeze 
both the Stars and Stripes of the land of his adoption and the Unioi 
Jack of the land of his nativity. 

Mr. Carnegie's name was not unknown in the world of letters 
and his contributions to literature were of a varied character. His 
books numbered some twelve or more. His first production, a 



1919] Andrew Carnegie 245 

testimony to his love of coaching, appeared in 1883, under the title 
of "An American Four-in-Hand in Great Britain/' The following 
year he wrote "Around the World," a book of travel. This was 
followed by "Triumphant Democracy, " "The Gospel of Wealth," 
"The Empire of Business," and "The Life of James Watt," the 
inventor of the steam engine. The most recent production of his 
pen was "Problems of Today." 

Numerous honors and decorations were bestowed upon Mr. 
Carnegie by rulers and people all over the world. In recognition 
of his princely benefactions, he received the freedom of scores of 
cities in Great Britain and Ireland. He was lord rector of the Uni- 
versity of St. Andrews from 1903 to 1907 and of the University of 
Aberdeen from 1912 to 1914; and was honored with the degree of 
Doctor of Laws by the Universities of Edinburgh, Glasgow, Birm- 
ingham, and Manchester in Great Britain, by McGill University 
in Canada, and by Brown University, the University of Pennsylvania, 
and Cornell University in the United States. 

He belonged to numerous philosophical, civic, and scientific bodies, 
among them the American Institute of Architects, the American 
Society of Mechanical Engineers, the American Institute of Mining 
Engineers, the National Civic Federation, the American Philosophic 
Society, and the New York Chamber of Commerce. He was a 
commander of the Legion of Honor of France and had also received 
the Grand Crosses, Order of Orange Nassau and Order of Danebrog. 
He was a member of the Union League, New York Yacht, Authors', 
Lotos, St. Andrews Riding, and Indian Harbor Yacht Clubs. Shortly 
before his death he accepted an invitation to become a Pilgrim 
Tercentenary member of the New Eng and Historic Genealogical 
Society, thus showing his high appreciation of the work of this 
institution and giving fresh proof of his devotion to the ideals of 
the founders of American democracy. 

On 22 April 1887, at the age of fifty-one, Mr. Carnegie was united 
in marriage to Louise, daughter of the late John R. Whitfield, Esq., 
and Frances (Davis) Whitfield of New York City. The ceremony 
was performed at the home of Mrs. Carnegie's mother, No. 35 
West Forty-eighth Street. Mrs. Carnegie, her husband's junior 
by twenty years, is a native of New York, and enjoys membership 
in the Huguenot Society of America and the Dorothy Whitfield 
Society. The domesticity of Mr. and Mrs. Carnegie was one of tran- 
quillity and sympathetic understanding. In addition to his widow, 
Mr. Carnegie is survived by an only daughter, Margaret, who on 
23 April of this year became the wife of Ensign Roswell Miller, 
U. S.N., of Millbrook, N. Y. 

The passing of this distinguished man brought forth expressions 
of grief from the press of all countries and messages of sympathy 
from the rulers of the Old World and from prominent state officials 
in America, but the highest and most enduring tribute to his memory 
comes and will continue to come in all ages from the great rank 
and file of mankind, the beneficiaries of his gifts, who will wreathe 
his grave with joy and write the happiness he gave.

EARLY VITAL RECORDS OF COLRAIN, MASS. 

From a manuscript in the possession of the New England Historic 

Genealogical Society 

The plantation of Colrain, Mass., was incorporated as a town

three other towns, it was set off from Hampshire County to form 
Franklin County. The following records relating to the early 
families of Colrain were copied in 1888 from the town records by 
William O. Taylor of Shelburne Falls, Mass., and were presented 
by him to the New England Historic Genealogical Society in 1896. 
In printing these records the customary abbreviations have been 
used for the names of the months, and present-day punctuation 
has been supplied.

RECORDS OF THE FIRST CHURCH OF MOUNT DESERT, 

MAINE, 1792-1867 

Communicated by Belvin Thomas Williston of Somerville, Mass. 

The first permanent English settlement on the island of Mount 
Desert was made in 1762, when Abraham Somes of Gloucester, Mass., 
who had made a trip to the island in the preceding year for barrel 
staves, came back with his wife and four children and built a log 
house near the head of Somes Sound. Other settlers followed, and 
in 1776 they began to hold district meetings, in accordance with 
an act of the Massachusetts General Court authorizing unincor- 
porated plantations in Maine to hold meetings, choose officers, and 
transact business "as if they were incorporated into a town." On 
17 Febl 1789 the Plantation of Mount Desert was incorporated as 
the Town of Mount Desert, the territory of the new town com-

prising the entire island of Mount Desert with the smaller island: 
adjacent. On 23 Feb. 1796 the northern portion of the town wa: 
set off as the Town of Eden. On 16 Mar. 1830 the Cranberry 
Islands with some neighboring isles were set off from Mount Deser 
and incorporated as the Town of Cranberry Isles. On 3 June 184$ 
the southern part of Mount Desert was incorporated as the Town o 
Mansel, a name which was changed, 8 Aug. 1848, to Tremont 
This last-mentioned town was divided in Feb. 1905, when the easten 
part was set off and incorporated as the Town of Southwest Harbor 
Five towns, therefore, now occupy the territory which in 1789 wai 
incorporated as the Town of Mount Desert.* 

It was thirty years after the first English settlement on the islanc 
and more than three years after the incorporation of the town tha 
the first church was organized, 17 Oct. 1792. "Without the aid o 
council and without any minister present, but following instruction 
furnished by a Rev. Samuel McClintock of Greenland, N. H., eigh 
women and six men, living at or near Southwest Harbor, subscribec 
their names to a covenant and organized as the Mount Desen 
Congregational Church. It was two years more before they wert 
visited by an ordained minister, Rev. Samuel Eaton of Harpswell 
when they adopted a new covenant and observed for the first time 
the Lord's Supper.' 'f 

From the records of this church the following entries have beer 
extracted by Miss Mary Ann Carroll of Southwest Harbor, who has 
served as clerk of the church since 1867. Maiden names of some o 
the married women have been supplied by Miss Carroll and hav< 
been, with the usual parentheses to indicate them, enclosed ii 
brackets. Other information given by Miss Carroll has been placec 
in footnotes. 

A Record of the Church of Christ in the 
Town of Mount desert 

The Gethering and forming of a Church in the Town of Mount desert an( 
the Procedings thereof begain on October the 17th Day in the year of oui 
Lord 1792 . . . 

having Received Instruction from the Revrend Mr Samuel Macclintocl 
with a Covenant — a number of us appinted the 17th Day of October in the 
year of our Lord 1792 for a* Day of fasting and Pra} r er; for the Purpose oJ 
forming our Selves into a Church & Profess to take Christ for our head. 

Accordingly being assembled and meet together we Signed the following 
Covenant . . . 
in testimony of our free and full consent to this Declaration profession and 

*It should be stated, also, that Thompson's Island, lying in Mount Desert Narrows between 
Mount Desert Island and the mainland, was, with a small portion of Mount Desert Island, sel 
off from Eden, 27 June 1849, and annexed to Trenton on the mainland. In 183S an ephemera] 
town called Seaville was formed out of Bartlett'a Island and other islands lying west of Mount 
Desert; but on 24 Feb. 1859 the act of incorporation was repealed, Bartlett'a Island was restored 
to the town of Mount Desert, and Hardwood and Tinker's Islands were annexed to 
Tremont. 

tMount Desert, by the late Rev. George E. Street, D.D., pp. 231-232. From this book most 
of the information given above has been taken, and to it the reader is referred for an instructive 
and entertaining history of the island and for genealogies of some of the early settlers. A list 
of intentions of marriage in Mount Desert, 1789-1809, may be found in Bangor Historical Maga- 
zine, vol. 5, pp. 143-145.

THOMAS WAITE OF PORTSMOUTH, R. L, 
AND SOME OF HIS DESCENDANTS 

By G. Andrews Moriarty, Jr., A.M., LL.B., of Newport, R. I. 

This article does not purport to be in any sense of the word a 
complete account of the Waite family of Rhode Island, but is a 
compilation from notes made some years since in a somewhat ex- 
tended investigation of the earlier members of this family, during 
which fairly complete information was gathered concerning the earlier 
generations. In the course of this investigation it was found that 
the printed accounts of the family, including that given by Austin 
in his "Genealogical Dictionary of Rhode Island," were so confused 
and inaccurate as to be of little service to the investigator, while in 
addition sundry errors and misreadings in Arnold's "Vital Record of 
Rhode Island" did not tend to help matters. The object of this 
article, therefore, is solely to aid such persons as may have occasion 
to investigate the earlier generations of this family and to save them 
from the confusion that the writer encountered in his own investi- 
gations. 

1. Thomas 1 Waite of Portsmouth, R.I., husbandman, born, prob- 
ably in England, about 1615, died shortly before 14 Dec. 1669. He 

VOL. LXXIII. 19 



292 Descendants of Thomas Waite [Oct 

married Eleanor , who survived him and was living 14 Dec. 

1669 (see below). 

Nothing is known with certainty in regard to the English ante- 
cedents of Thomas Waite, but he may be identical with Thomas, 
sixth son of Samuel and Mary (Ward) Waite of Wethersfield, co. 
Essex, England, who were the progenitors of the Waites of Maiden, 
Mass.* The recurrence of the same Christian names in both 
families tends to confirm this view. 

On 1 July 1639 he was granted land at Portsmouth. On 16 Mar. 
1641 he was admitted a freeman of that town, and received further 
grants there of land in 1644 and 1646. On 8 July 1650 he was a 
juryman. On 7 June 1658, and again in 1663, he was chosen con- 
stable. On 30 Apr. 1661 he purchased of William Earle one-fourth 
of a share of the Acushnet and Coxet lands, in what is now Dartmouth, 
Mass. He was one of the purchasers of Conanicut and Dutch 
Islands in 1656, and was also a large owner of lands at Narragansett 
and Misquamicut (Westerly). On 4 Dec. 1669 his estate was 
divided by the Portsmouth Town Council among his wife and chil- 
dren. The division shows that his wife was named Eleanor and 
the children named were Samuel, Thomas, Benjamin, Reuben, 
Jeremiah, and Mary. Joseph, having died previously, is not men- 
tioned. Thomas and Jeremiah were under twenty-one. The docu- 
ment dividing the estate was long lost, but was found in the winter 
of 1913-14 in the cellar of the Portsmouth Town House. 
Children (order unknown) : 

2. i. Samuel, 2 b., according to his deposition in the town records, abt. 1640. 
ii. Joseph, of Portsmouth, b. abt. 1643; drowned at Portsmouth 25 Aug. 

1665; m. Sarah . On 16 Sept. 1665 the Town Council of 

Portsmouth granted administration on his estate to his widow, 
Sarah, and made provision for her unborn child. As no provision 
was made for this child in the division of the estate of Thomas Waite 
in 1669, it may be assumed that it was stillborn or died young, f 

3. iii. Benjamin, b. abt. 1645. 

4. iv. Reuben. 

5. v. Thomas, b. after 1648. 

vi. Jeremiah, of Portsmouth, b. after 1648; d. s. p. before 10 May 1677; 
m. Martha Brownell, b. in May 1643, d. at Portsmouth 15 Feb. 
1744, dau. of Thomas and Ann. She m. (2) after 8 Mar. 1690 
Charles Dyer, s. of William and Mary, the last-mentioned being 
Mary Dyer, the Quakeress, who was put to death on Boston Com- 
mon in 1660 by the Massachusetts authorities. Jeremiah Waite was 
admitted a freeman of Portsmouth on 6 May 1673. On 10 Mav 
1677 Martha Wait, widow of Jeremiah, bought land in Portsmouth 
of Daniel Wilcox, Sr. On 8 Mar. 1677 she bought land at Little 
Compton, R. I., of her brother, Robert Brownell. In her will, 
dated 29 Jan. 1734 and proved 12 Mar. 1744, she bequeathed to her 
Brownell relatives. 

vii. Mary, d. after 1713; m. at Portsmouth, 5 Apr. 1676, Joseph 
Anthony of Portsmouth and Tiverton, R. I. 

2. Samuel 2 Wait (Thomas 1 ), born about 1640, died at Portsmouth or 
Kingstown, R. L, in Feb. 1676/7. He married Hannah , 

* Cf. Register, vol. 32, p. 188. 

fMr. Austin in his account of this family and John Cassan Wait in his Descendants of Thomas 
Wait credit Joseph Waite with a son, William Wait of Rochester, Mass.; but an examination of 
the Rochester records shows that this man was named William Wiett (». e., WyattJ. 



1919] Descendants of Thomas Watte 293 

who married secondly, before 12 Oct. 1694, James Sampson of 
Dartmouth, Mass., a son of Henry Sampson, one of the passen- 
gers in the Mayflower in 1620. 

He received from his father his Narragansett lands, and 
appears to have been at Narragansett as early as 8 Mar. 1656, 
when he witnessed, as interpreter, a deed from the Sachem 
Coginaquand to Richard Smith of land at Potomcasutt. On 23 
June 1662 he, aged about 22 years, testified regarding this deed. 
He again deposed 26 Feb. 1667, aged about 27 years. On 3 
July 1663 he, as an inhabitant and proprietor of lands in Narra- 
gansett, petitioned to be under the jurisdiction of Connecticut. 
On 4 May 1668 he was one of the inhabitants of Wickford, R. I., 
who petitioned Connecticut to reassume authority over the 
Narragansett country; otherwise they might seek protection 
elsewhere. On 20 May 1671 he abandoned his allegiance to 
Connecticut and took the oath of allegiance to Rhode Island, 
as an inhabitant of Acquedneset, and on 6 May 1673 he was a 
freeman of that Colony. On 11 Feb. 1676/7 he and his wife 
Hannah conveyed to his brother Thomas the house and all the 
land in Portsmouth that he had received from his father's estate 
in the division referred to above. He died shortly afterwards, 
and in Feb. 1677 [1676/7] administration on his estate was 
granted to his widow Hannah by the Portsmouth Town 
Council. 

Children (order unknown) : 

6. i. Samuel, 3 b. abt. 1660. 

ii. Joseph, of Kingstown, non compos mentis, d. unm. In 1678, in the 
division of lands at East Greenwich, R. I., Samuel Wait drew 
Farm 24 on account of "his brother Joseph Wait." On 7 Oct. 1702 
he sold 90 acres at East Greenwich to Daniel Briggs of Patience 
Island. The Kingstown probate records, under date of 8 Jan. 1704, 
recite that he is non compos and as such has made contracts with 
Beriah Brown, and state that all such bargains are void; Samuel 
Wait, his brother, was appointed his guardian. 

iii. Susanna (probably), m. at Kingstown, 24 Mar. 1692, as his second 
wife, Moses Barber of Kingstown. 

3. Benjamin 2 Wait (Thomas 1 ), born about 1645, was slain at the 
taking of Deerfield, Mass., on 29 Feb. 1703/4. He married 
at Hatfield, Mass., 8 June 1670, Martha Leonard, daughter 
of John of Springfield, Mass. 

He resided at Hadley, Hatfield, and Deerfield, Mass. In the 
division of his father's estate he received the lands at Mis- 
quamicut (Westerly), which he disposed of, and then removed 
to the Connecticut Valley, where he was one of the guides of 
Capt. William Turner and his men in the "Falls Fight" in 
May 1676. On 3 Feb. 1703/4 William Rooker assigned to 
Thomas Wait of Seaconnet (Little Compton) and Benjamin 
Wait of Hadley 40 acres in Brookfield, Mass. On 24 May 1717 
Jeremiah, John, and Joseph Wait of Hatfield and John Beld- 
ing, Joseph Smith, and Ebenezer Wells, married to the daugh- 
ters of Benjamin Wait, deceased, sold the above-named land 
to Capt. Thomas Baker of Northampton, Mass., and war-

aforesaid Benjamin. 
Children :

1713 Hannah Billings; m. (2) 22 Sept. 1720 Mary Warner.* 

4. Reuben 2 Waite (Thomas 1 ), of Dartmouth, Mass., died at Dart- 
mouth 7 Oct. 1707. He married Tabitha Lounders, daughter 

of and Jane (Kirby) . 

He received his father's Dartmouth lands in the division 
of his estate, and settled in that town. In 1685 he is enumer- 
ated among the Dartmouth proprietors appearing in the 
* Plymouth Court. His house, one of the oldest in Dart- 

mouth, is still standing in that section of the town lying be- 
tween Accoxet and Appomagansett. The earliest parts were 
probably built as early as 1669, and it seems to have escaped 
the general destruction that overtook the town in King 
Philip's War. In his will, dated 11 Oct. 1707 and proved 
5 Nov. 1707, he mentions his wife Tabitha, his sons Benjamin, 
Joseph, Reuben, and Jeremiah, and his daughters Eleanor, 
Abigail, and Tabitha. 

Children, born at Dartmouth: 

7. i. Thomas, 3 b. 22 Apr. 1683. 

ii. Eleanor, b. 4 Jan. 1688; m. at Dartmouth, 5 Jan. 1704, Abiel Tripp 
of Dartmouth, son of Abiel and Deliverance (Hall) of Dartmouth. 

iii. Benjamin, of Dartmouth, b. 12 Jan. 1690; d. s. p. before 24 Feb. 1772. 
He appears in various conveyances of land at Dartmouth between 
1720 and 1756. On 14 June 1749 William Davol and Edward 
Cornell were made his guardians, as he was non compos mentis. 
Thereafter, at frequent intervals, a guardian was appointed for him. 
In a lucid moment he made his will, which is dated 1 Feb. 1758 and 
was proved 24 Feb. 1772, and states that at that time he was of 
sound mind. He bequeathed to his cousins, Mary and Elizabeth 
Anthony, daughters of Joseph Anthony of Tiverton, R. I., and 
appointed his cousin, Thomas Anthony of Tiverton, his executor. 
Administration on his estate was granted to his nephew, Stephen 
Wait, as Thomas Anthony was dead. 

8. iv. Joseph (twin), b. 24 June 1693. 

v. Abigail (twin), b. 24 June 1693; d. unm. 

9. vi. Reuben (twin), b. 15 June 1695. 

vii. Tabitha (twin), b. 15 June 1695; living, single and non compos 
mentis, at Portsmouth, R. I., on 12 Jan. 1756, when her guardian, 
Robert Dennis of Portsmouth, received £30 on the death of Jere- 
miah Waite. 

viii. Jeremiah, of Dartmouth, yeoman, b. 16 Jan. 1698; d. s.p. at Dart- 
mouth 16 Sept. 1754. On 17 Jan. 1726/7 he sold to his brother, 
Benjamin Wait, land in Dartmouth which his father, Reuben Wait, 

•As a full and excellent account of this family has been printed in Judd's History of Hadley. 
the writer will not proceed further with this line. 






1919] Descendants of Thomas V/aite 295 

had left him by his will. In his own will, dated 12 May 1754 and 
proved 9 Nov. 1754, Jeremiah Wait bequeathed to his cousins, 
Reuben Wait and the latter' s son Jeremiah, to his brother Thomas 
and his wife Mary, and to his cousins Phoebe Wait, Reuben Wait, 
and Meribah Soule. 

5. Thomas 2 Waite (Thomas^), tailor, born after 1648, died before 16 

June 1733. He married Sarah Cook, daughter of John and 
Mary (Borden) of Portsmouth, R. I., and mentioned as his 
daughter in the will of John Cook of Portsmouth, dated 15 
May 1691 and proved 25 May 1691. 

Thomas Waite resided in Portsmouth and Tiverton, R. I., and 
Dartmouth, Mass. On 6 May 1673 he was admitted a free- 
man of Rhode Island, and on 11 Feb. 1677 his brother Samuel 
conveyed to him their father's house in Portsmouth. On 25 
Mar. 1680 he was one of the seven original purchasers who 
purchased the Pocasset (Tiverton) lands from Gov. Josiah 
Winslow of Plymouth. He also owned land in Dartmouth, and 
on 28 Aug. 1680 he sold land there to Thomas Ward of New- 
port, R. I. His Pocasset holdings appear to have been in 
Punketest Neck, for he sold land there on 13 Mar. 1683. On 
2 Mar. 1692 he was one of the original inhabitants of Tiverton. 
On 7 Jan. 1691 he, styled Thomas Wait of Little Compton, 
taylor, and wife Sarah sold land at Punketest Neck to John 
Woodman and John Irish. On 31 Jan. 1721 he was of Dart- 
mouth, and sold land at Punketest Neck in Tiverton. At his 
death he was residing in Dartmouth, and on 16 June 1733 his 
inventory was presented by his widow and administratrix, 
Sarah. 

Children (order unknown) : 

i. Mary, 3 b. abt. 1680; d. after 1759; m. at Tiverton, 27 Feb. 1700, 
John Earle, son of William and Prudence of Portsmouth and 
Dartmouth. 

10. ii. Thomas, b. at Portsmouth 21 Dec. 1681. 

11. iii. Benjamin, b. abt. 1683. 

6. Samuel 3 Wait (Samuel, 2 Thomas 1 ), born about 1660, died at 

Exeter, R. I., before 15 Apr. 1752. He married Alice Wight- 
man, daughter of George and Elizabeth (Updike). 

He resided in Kingstown, R. I., in that part of the town 
afterwards set off as Exeter. On 30 Mar. 1693 he sold to 
William Burrington land at Portsmouth, at a place called 
Little Silver, and on 12 Oct. 1694 James Sampson of Dart- 
mouth, Mass., and wife Hannah released their thirds in this 
piece of land sold by "our" son Samuel Wait to William Bur- 
rington. On 2 Feb. 1685 he was a freeman at Kingstown, and 
on 7 May 1694 he sold land there. On 21 Apr. 1705 he quit- 
claimed to his uncle, Reuben Wait of Dartmouth, lands in 
Dartmouth that formerly belonged to his grandfather, Thomas 
Waite. On 2 Sept. 1706 he was a grand juryman. On 27 
May 1709, he with others, bought 792 acres of vacant lands 
in Narragansett. He appears in the Kingstown records from 
time to time, conveying land there to his various sons. In his 



296 Descendants of Thomas Watte [Oct. 

will, dated 30 Dec. 1747 and proved 15 Apr. 1752, he devised 
and bequeathed to his sons Joseph and Samuel, to the children 
of his deceased son Benjamin, namely Virtue, Abigail, and 
John Wait, to his son John, and to his wife Alice.

His family has not been traced, but be probably left children, who 

may, perhaps, be discovered by a further examination of Um 

records. 

Tina marriage is not recorded, hut their grandson, Abraham Sanford, stated that his Grand- 
mother Sanford's maiden name was "Weight ." A nt in another branch of ti. 

family claimed descent from the Waits, and stated that hrr great-grandfather took care of Eliza- 
beth Weight, a relative. On 8 Apr. 1747 the Tiverton Town Council voted that William Sanford 
take care of Elizabeth "Weight," and that he receive ISO i year while he looks after her. William 
Sanford also witnessed Thomas Wait's will, and William and M .r\ Sinford had a son D 
Thomas. As this is the only Mary of record who could have married William Sanford, and as 
they were near neighbors in Tiverton, it is clear that she was the Mary Weight who married 
William Sanford. 

fThe order of the births of these children is deduced from what remains of the burned records 
of North Kingstown.

THE DIARY OF MASTER JOSEPH TATE 
OF SOMERSWORTH, N. H. 

From a manuscript in the possession op the New England Historic 

Genealogical Society 

The town of Somersworth, N. H., was set off from Dover and 
incorporated as a separate town on 23 Apr. 1754. It included at 
that time the territory of the present towns of Somersworth and 
Rollinsford, the latter town, forming the southeastern part of 
Somersworth, having been set off and incorporated on 3 July 1849. 
The so-called "Diary" of Master Tate is a record which was kept 
by an early schoolmaster of Somersworth, who lived in that part 
of the town which is now Rollinsford. His name first appears in 
the records of Somersworth on 6 Apr. 1752, while Somersworth 
was still only a parish, the entry under that date reading: "voted 
Mr. Joseph Tate twenty three Pounds old Tenor to keep ye Parish 
School one year." His exact term of service as a teacher is not 
known, but in his later years- he was a town charge, lived with the

Wait, by John Cassan Wait. This list may contain errors. 



1919] Master Tate's Diary 305 

family of Capt. Maurice Hobbs, and on his death was buried on 
the Hobbs farm. The "Diary" supplies some information about 
his wife and children.* 

In this "Diary" Master Tate entered the family records of the 
inhabitants of Somers worth from about 1740 to the middle of the 
Revolutionary War. He gave the names of parents, with the 
birth records of their children, and also many marriage and death 
records. He inserted items of local historical interest and various 
entries of a miscellaneous character, such as anecdotes, verses, 
hymns, etc., which were for the most part copied from almanacs 
and newspapers of the day. 

It was long believed that the original manuscript of Master 
Tate's "Diary" was lost, although a few copies were in existence; 
but on 19 Nov. 1896 the original record was given by Rev. Daniel 
Rollinsf of Boston to the New England Historic Genealogical So- 
ciety, and is now carefully preserved in the Society's fireproof build- 
ing. In 1904 the late James Swift Rogers, A.B., a member of the 
Society, had several typewritten copies made of the original manu- 
script. One of these he presented to the Library of the Society 
and others were distributed or sold to persons interested in the 
history and genealogy of Somersworth and Rollinsford and to a 
few libraries. In order, however, to place the information contained 
in Master Tate's record at the disposal of those to whom the type- 
written copies are not accessible, it has been decided to publish it 
in the Register, omitting only such miscellaneous entries as are 
of no genealogical or historical importance and a few other words 
and passages which are hardly suitable for publication.

Resident and Life Members of the Society had become Pilgrim Tercentenary 
Members : 

Mrs. Franklyn Hallett Lovell Samuel Putnam Avery 

Grant Walker Frederick Marden Ambrose 

Clement Stevens Houghton Harry Bates Thayer 

Edward Augustus Bowen 

The Council also reported the names of twenty-three candidates for Pilgrim 
Tercentenary Membership, one candidate for Life Membership, and four 
candidates for Resident Membership, stating that action by the Council on 
these names would be in order after they had been posted for thirty days, in 
accordance with the By-Laws. By vote of the Society the reading of the names 
of these candidates was omitted. 

The Recording Secretary announced that Mr. Charles Sherburne Penhallow, 
in a letter dated 3 September 1919, had presented his resignation as a member 
of the Council; and, on motion, it was 

Voted, That the Society has learned with great regret that Mr. Charles Sherburne Penhallow 
finds it impossible to remain longer as a member of the Council, and that it enters on its records 
at this time its appreciation of Mr. Penhallow's faithful services to the Society, especially as 
Chairman of the Committee on English Research for thirteen years (1905-1917). 

Voted, That at the stated meeting of this Society in November next an election be held, in 
accordance with the By-Laws, to fill the vacancy in the Council caused by the resignation of 
Charles Sherburne Penhallow. 

The Chair then presented, as the speaker of the afternoon, J. Gardner Bartlett 
of Boston and London, who gave an entertaining and instructive address en- 
titled Ancestor Hunting in England. Mr. Bartlett, who since the death of Henry 
FitzGilbert Waters has been recognized as the greatest living authority on the 
early settlers of New England and their English antecedents, described the 
methods employed by American investigators among English records in tracing 
the ancestry of the early immigrants to New England. He illustrated his remarks 
by interesting lantern slides showing facsimiles of various ancient genealogical 
documents and views of several cathedrals and depositories of public records 
in England. 

After the Society had voted to extend its thanks to the speaker, the Ghair, 
at 4.05 P.M., declared the meeting dissolved, and the members of the Society, 
with their guests, enjoyed a social hour in the tea room. 



320 Notes [Oct. 



NOTES 

It having come to the attention of this Society that certain geneal- 
ogists and publishers have usd the name of the Society in con- 
nection with their own enterprises, the Society again desires to 
state tbat it has NO genealogical representatives in this country 
or in England, nor is it in any way connected with any publications 
other than those that it issues over its own name at 9 Ashburton 
Place, Boston. 

Westcott-Lewis. — In J. Russell Bullock's "Stukeley Westcote and Some of 
His Descendants," published in two parts, 1886 and 1888, the statement is made 
(page 111 of the second part) that Martha 5 Westcott (Jabez, 4 Samuel, 3 Jeremiah, 2 
Stukeley 1 of Salem, Mass., and of Providence, Warwick, and Portsmouth, R. I.) 
married Benjamin Lewis of Providence, and had probably a son Benjamin, who 
was born in 1785 and died 11 June 1848. Mehitable 6 Westcott, sister of Martha,' 
is said in the same book to have married John Dykeman of New York City. 

This statement in regard to the husband of Martha Westcott was based on a 
chart, preserved in the library of the Rhode Island Historical Society at Provi- 
dence, which gives the descendants of Samuel 3 Westcott, grandfather of Martha, 
and his wife, Freelove Fenner. The wording of the chart is: "Martha Westcot 
marrid Benja Lewis," and "Benj a " was interpreted by the compiler of the West- 
cott genealogy as "Benjamin." The following record, copied from a leaf taken 
from a Lewis Family Bible,* shows that the husband of Martha Westcott was 
Benajah (not Benjamin) Lewis, and gives the birth records of their children: 

Benajah Lewis & Martha Wescott was married May 7 th 1761 = 

Sarah Lewis Born 3d Oct*. 1762 

Nancy Lewis Born 25 th Aug. 1764 

James Lewis Born 11 th Feb. 1767 

Sabin Lewis Born 15 Sept 1769 

Jabez Lewis Born 22 May 1772 

Martha Lewis Wife of Benajah Lewis Died 22 Sept 1772 M 30 Y. 9 D. 

Jabez Lewis son of Benajah Died 31 Oct 1772 M 5 Months 9 D 
A letter written in 1824 by Sabin Lewis, son of Benajah and Martha (West- 
cott) Lewis, to his brother, James Lewis, gives considerable information about the 
writer's family and relatives, and the reference in it to "uncle Dyckman's family" 
furnishes additional evidence of the identity of the Martha Westcott whom 
Benajah Lewis married, proving her to be a sister of the Mehitable Westcott who 
married John Dykeman of New York City. The letter, which is addressed to M r 
James L[ewjis, New B[er]lin, Cou[n]ty of Chenango, New York,f is in part as 
follows : 

Poughkeepsie August 11 th 1824. 
I received your favour, giving the melancholy information of the death of your 
wife, which was the first news I had of it. — Dear brother, you have had many 
and severe trials ... 

. . . God . . . was first pleased to afflict me with a grievous chastning in 
the sudden and premature death of my little son, which sister Nancy undoubtedly 
informed you of . . . . Then in my old age, when on the brink of the grave, 
I began the important work, which a whole life would be too short to accomplish. 
And it appears to me that about two years and a half which I have endeavoured 
to spend in the service of my God is the only time, which I can truly have said 
to have lived since I was born. — Dear brother, I wish much to see you and should, 
long before this, had not my circumstances have been such, as made it impossible. 

*The leaf containing the record was brought in 1793 from Providence. R I., to Chenango Co., 
N. Y., by James Lewis, son of Benajah and grandfather of the writer of this note. It passed 
into the possession of James Lewis, son of James, and was sent to the writer by Mrs. Minerva 
Lewis (wife of the younger James), who died in 1913, aged 96 years. The Bible itself was left 
in Providence, and all trace of it has been lost. 

fThe paper is broken and worn where it was folded, and the letters in the address which are 
enclosed in brackets are no longer legible.

Your mentioning, that you designed making me a visit this fall has caused me 
much joy, and I sincerely hope you will accomplish it. My wife, and what children 
I have at home, would be delighted to see you. Charles, my oldest son is married 
and has two children, and at preasent, live near us. — Elzada, our daughter, is 
likewise married and has two children, and live about Thirty six miles from this. 
— Jabez, my second son, lives in Augusta state of Georgia, and is unmarried. — 
Elmanson, my third son, lives in Milford state of Delaware, and is likewise single. 
— Palemon, my youngest son, boards at home and is learning the book-binding 
business. — God has blessed me with filial, sober and industrious children, 
who, are a comfort and a prop to my declining years. We are enjoying good 
health. ... 

I have lately had a letter from Richard Stone,* who lives in Charlton, Massa- 
chusetts, about Forty miles from Providence. He and family were well, like- 
wise his father's, which he had heard from but a few days before the date. 

I have just returned from New- York, and have made a visit to cousin Hetty 
Turnbull. She buried her husband about two years since, and has been for some 
time past in a decline, I think a consumption. . . . She has a very fine family 
of children by whose industry, she is now chiefly supported. Her sister Martha, 
M rs Rogers, lives near her and is in comfortable circumstances. They two are 
all that are left of uncle Dyckman's family. . . . 

your Affectionate Brother.

Historical Intelligence 



Heraldry. — The Committee on Heraldry of the New England Historic 
• Genealogical Society strongly recommends that all coats of arms which can be 

proved to be authentic be offered for record 
with this Society. The arrangements for the 
making and preservation of such records are 
complete, and the volume of recorded arms has 
been begun by the entry therein of a number of 
well-authenticated coats. Printed forms and 
directions for the making of applications may 
be obtained from the Committee, and all com- 
munications on this subject should be addressed 
to the Committee on Heraldry, New England 
Historic Genealogical Society, 9 Ashburton 
Place, Boston. 

Without taking any position with reference to 
the propriety of assuming arms, the Committee 
will be glad to examine arms or heraldic devices 
which any person or organization desires to as- 
sume, and give advice as to whether the same are heraldically correct or whether 
they violate a right of exclusive use heretofore acquired by others. 




Genealogies in Preparation. — Persons of the several names' are advised 
to furnish the compilers of these genealogies with records of their own families 
and other information which they think may be useful. We would suggest that 
all facts of interest illustrating family history or character be communicated, 
especially service under the U. S. Government, the holding of other offices, grad- 
uation from college or professional schools, occupation, with places and dates 
of birth, marriage, residence, and death. All names should be given in full if 
possible. No initials should be used when the full name is known. 

* Richard Cecil Stone, afterwards a Congregational minister, was a nephew of the writer of the let- 
ter. He was son of Rufus Stone (a descendant of Hugh Stone of Warwick, R. I.) and his wife Sarah 
Lewis, daughter of Benajah and Martha (Westcott) Lewis. For this Stone family see Genealogy 
of the Stone Family originating in Rhode Island, by Rev. Richard Cecil Stone, Providence, 1866.

Owing to the large number of letters received by the officers of the New England 
Historic Genealogical Society, asking for genealogical or other information, to answer 
jvhich satisfactorily would in many cases require extended investigations, it has 
become impossible for them to give personal attention to such inquiries, nor is 
it practicable to refer these letters to any of the assistants in the employ of the 
Society, because their time is occupied fully by their regular duties. The officers, 
however, are glad to help those seeking information by calling attention to the expert 
services of the genealogists, book dealers, printers and publishers, engravers and 
photographers, manufacturers of paper, etc., who advertise in the following pages. 
Inquirers should make their own business arrangements with those whose names are 
given below, as the Society assumes NO responsibility in the matter.
